Museum Trustee Terry Levett Passes Away

24th December 2011

More sad museum news to report we're afraid. Our dear friend and trustee Terry Levett passed away recently after the cancer which he beat in 2008 returned. He was an absolute stalwart of the Museum and in no small part was responsible for the successful construction of the two new display halls in 2010-2011. It was a bitter blow to lose him, especially just four weeks after Richard.

Terry Levett

His funeral was marked by a beautifully fitting flypast by two Tiger Moths in 'missing man' formation, thanks to the kind offices of Mark Johnson, Matt Boddington, Paul Ford and Ian and Tom Castle.

So 2011 ended on a very sad note but the Museum is determined to carry on, efforts redoubled, in their memory in 2012. Blue skies Tel.
