Tommy Knight, G2FUU celebrated his 100th birthday in February 2021

Tommy Knight, G2FYY passed away on Monday 5 July 2021 at the age of 100. He was featured in the April 2021 RadCom (p14) celebrating his centenary (see photo), when he received a card from Her Majesty.

He became interested in amateur radio when he left school because his friend was a radio amateur. Instead of waiting to be called up for WWII he decided to volunteer for the RAF and spent the war fitting radar into Spitfires.

After the war, he took his amateur radio licence and he has always been keen on overseas contacts. He enjoyed regular skeds on Sunday mornings with radio amateurs in Australia, NZ and West Indies and occasionally he and his wife, Olive, met them in person for holidays.

Tommy was active on the air to nearly the end, especially as part of ROAR (Rotarians Over Amateur Radio) net.
