“Happy for you to use the interview and publish as you see fit”
Howard Chadwick (28th November 2021)
Howard Chadwick is the only person who, when asked to provide photographs to accompany his Back-Chat webpage, included two of him with the Queen taken when he was awarded the MBE at Buckingham Palace – his story of that day is brilliant.
At the beginning of our chat, we talked about Coronavirus and Brexit with interesting observations made by Howard in May 2020.
He tells us about his family involvement with Yeadon Sailing Club since 1930 (two years after it was started) and the AVRO where his mother worked.
We hear about the sad loss of his first wife Sarah and the joy his second wife Dee has brought him. One of Howard’s hobbies is Precision Air Rifle Target Shooting.
