William Jowitt - Post War

In August 1945, Bill was about to be posted to the Far East to fight the Japanese, but the war ended and so he returned to Bunde, Germany. By now his unit was known as 3 GHQ Regiment BAOR. (Regimental Christmas card below).

Here he is with Don Baird, Tiny Leach and others. Whilst in Bunde, Bill met his future wife, Edith. Bill was demobbed in 1947, by which time Phantom were known as the 3rd Independent Phantom Signals Regiment. He married Edith. After the war, Bill trained as a Maths and Science Teacher and taught in Lichfield and Hull, until his retirement. Bill died in 1999, but not before inspiring us, the next generation.
