Doug Nye – Remembering Jenks and Jazz

Back in 1996 when our friend Denis Jenkinson died, another motor racing mate, photographer Geoff Goddard, and I were left with the job of organising his funeral. Geoff was a most extraordinary man. His nickname amongst the magazine editorial staffs he had supplied with magnificent racing photography over so many years had become ‘Irascible of Camberley’. He was a walking, talking, unpredictable hand grenade of a man. He might be what he really was beneath the spring-loaded surface – widely knowledgeable, humorous, immensely generous… Or he might be explosively rude and dismissive. It depended, in effect, whether ‘the pin’ was in or out.
