Jack Lazenby D.F.C. will have his 97th birthday on Monday 15 September 2014.

Most of his WW2 story can be seen in the BBC WW2 Archive:

Many Vincent people will already know that after leaving the RAF he worked at the Vincent factory from 1946 to 1961.
His work there included building Lightnings and Picador engines.

I know that Jack appreciates getting birthday cards through the post, so here is possibly a last chance for Vincent people throughout the world to make Jack happy by sending him a card in appreciation of his contributions.
Together with his late wife, he was a keen gardener in earlier years, "as a nice change from engineering", so cards on that theme should be welcome.

I shall not put his address on the web site, for obvious reasons.
But I have arranged that cards may be sent to his favourite watering hole - address below.
Cards should preferably be posted to arrive on or before Friday 12 September, to ensure delivery is not delayed by the weekend 13/14 September.
The restaurant staff will collect all the cards and make sure that Jack gets them.

Post birthday cards to:

Jack Lazenby.

I tried following your links but couldn't get them to work.
Sorry about that.

Suggest you first go to

http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/ww2peopleswar/about/archive_information.shtml

Then read the 'how to search for V2' bit :

[ For example, to search the archive for the subject "v2 rocket", type into the search engine:
site:bbc.co.uk/history ww2 people's war v2 rocket ]

Then apply that, changing search text from 'V2' to 'JACK LAZENBY' , as follows:

site:bbc.co.uk/history ww2 people's war JACK LAZENBY

The above line needs to be copied and pasted into the address box of your search engine.


IGNORE THE LINK "http://tinyurl.com/m7j29pm"

I have tested the above advice on my own computer system and it works OK.

You may need to do a bit of extra searching using google etc to devise a method which works on your own system.

Good luck!
The story, which has many parts, is well worth the effort to access it.

Don't forget the birthday card!
