John was my headmaster at Sale Moor secondary, refererred to as "JET" by the pupils buy always Sir to his face, he was too well respected by the pupils for that. I wasn't aware of his service and wish l had the chance to show my gratitude for his service to our country. Sleep well Sir, you've earned it. Another name l shall remember on the 11th of November. Thoughts are with your family and friends at this sad time. Lest we forget.
