I am sorry to belatedly report that Helen Rainbow died on 28th May 2019 in Tockington. Over many years, Helen was closely involved with many of Frank’s activities and after his passing, she willingly shared his photographs and documents with interested persons.

In 1994 as the honoured guest at the Swallow Doretti Register’s 40th Anniversary celebration at Eccleshall in Staffordshire, she described it as an emotional occasion and thought it was marvellous to see the dedication and enthusiasm and sheer joy of the owners after all these years.

A few years later during a conversation with Helen, she mentioned that she would like to mark Frank’s centenary in some manner. The result was a superb luncheon at the 16th century Thornbury Castle in the summer of 2010, organised by Mike Nangreave and attended by many Doretti owners and enthusiasts. Helen Rainbow will be greatly missed by her many friends and Doretti owners.
