Inky didn’t have too many  regular RAF-type duties:  he mainly played cricket for the RAF against teams like the Lancashire Second Eleven and Cambridge and Oxford Universities…


After he left the RAF full-time, he was on reserve and could be called back at any time.  For this he was rewarded with £8 per year - for the first year  only, when this payment was scrapped…


When he left the RAF and returned to Hickling, he got married to Jean and lived in Sutton.
