    Angela Rippon’s personal biography of her father, John Rippon, RM.

    John Rippon RM — RMA Gig Club

    Served aboard HMS Rodney and HMS Newfoundland, in the North Atlantic, Mediterranean and Far East, theatres, including joining the American 5th Fleet in Japan.

    I found the biography interesting.

    Former England football manager, Sir Bobby Robson, hailed from nearby Langley Park and attended school in Esh Winning. It’s close to Durham (the city).
