Alan 'The Colonel' Jukes OBE (SHE1937-41) Celebrates 100th Birthday
30 November 2023
Many congratulations to Colonel Alan Jukes OBE (SHE1937-41) who reached 100 on 3 November 2023. He was delighted to receive a card and an Aldenham mug from Alex Hems, Head of the Aldenham Foundation, which took pride of place on his shelf along with a card from the King. Alan's PA told us that he was hoping to get one from Queen Elizabeth and said that "the one from King Charles would do". Guests at a celebration arranged by Admiral Jellicoe House staff, where Alan is a resident, included the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth and the Royal Marines Corps of Drums gathered to provide the pomp and ceremony befitting a former Naval Officer. It was a very special day for everyone and especially Alan.
