I am sad to hear of the passing of Aileen Druce on September 2nd 2012, in the Durban area. Aileen and Jimmy were great friends of my parents, Geoffrey and Frances, having met in Cairo during the latter part of the war. Aileen has been able to clear up a number of minor matters over the last few years while I have been transcribing Geoffrey’s tapes. It was a pleasure to meet her in my youth and to correspond with her more recently.
With sympathy to her family.
Thank you to John Buchan for the information.
