JOHN WORTH (c 1939 intake) August, 2010
John had a career mainly in engineering. He worked for Rolls Royce at Derby for many years and was a member of the team who designed the fan blades for their jet engines. He also made clocks in his spare time and enjoyed anything mechanical. For most of his life, he lived in theNewark-on-Trent area of Nottinghamshire and was married to Isabel, a successful and respected local primary school headteacher until her retirement several years ago.
Editor's Note: John contributed a very interesting article to the BBC's WW2 archive in 1995. It can be seen on the Intakes 1925-39 page.
