was with great sadness that the Branch learned of the death of Jock Ogston
(aged 89) in early June. This former Humberside Police and Royal Navy man
first supported us in 2007 at our first Hull Flag Day. Jock then continued
to help us over the years at various of our store collection and Flag Days.
He was a lovely man , always with a twinkle in his eye, and was always
immaculate in his Royal Navy jacket and medals.
