Elysium Photograph

Elysium or the Elysian Fields (Ancient Greek: Ἠλύσιον πεδίον, Ēlýsion pedíon) is a conception of the afterlife that developed over time and was maintained by certain Greek religious and philosophical sects and cults. Initially separate from the realm of Hades, admission was reserved for mortals related to the gods and other heroes. Later, it expanded to include those chosen by the gods, the righteous, and the heroic, where they would remain after death, to live a blessed and happy life, and indulging in whatever employment they had enjoyed in life.

John Chinca

From Tim Ellis with many thanks.

John at my place in Hornsby 1992 ( I think). We kept in touch until he passed 1996. He’d just been to see Frankie Howerd. Hope this helps, he was such a gentle soul.

Jane worked in the Environmental Lab and left round about 1980 for the National Maritime. Very lively, full of joie-de-vivre, certainly one of Hobley's Heroines. She died in September [2015] at the age of sixty after a long battle with cancer.
