RIP Jethro


Livestock Farmer
Very sad news that came as a bit of a shock. Originally from down far West Cornwall my mother along with my aunties and uncles went to primary school with him and he went to YFC with both my parents. His brother Les passed only a few months ago. Both true Cornishmen and will be sorely missed.


I saw him at his club many years back. Everybody laughed!

Cornwall lost a piece of itself today.
Remember him from my YFC days. He was a fair hand at sheaf pitching and I will never forget the day at County Rally when he was entered in the shepherd and imaginary dog competition.
