JOY LOFTHOUSE.   It was with the deepest regret that we report that Joy passed away peacefully at home in Cirencester.  Joy was married to 7 Squadron Pathfinder Pilot S/L Charles Lofthouse OBE, DFC who was for many years Secretary of 7 Squadron Association, during which time Joy established herself as an Honorary member of the Association which continued after Charles' death.   After the end of the war Joy became a teacher and it was at teacher training colledge where she met Charles.  This followied her wartime service as a Pilot with the ATA and it was this latter role which brought Joy to National attention when she featured in many documentaries about the ATA and Spitfires.  Joy was 95 when she passed away, a full Obituary will appear shortly.
