Known as Ray he was a local well known butcher in the Caerleon Road area of Newport. Ray was one of the only 2 members of Jonah Patrol that were not members of the Rover Scouts. David Escott recalls that Ray Skinner was another man of some ‘character’: “I thought he was a farmer, but he was certainly involved in some rather suspicious ‘slaughtering’ activities during the war, and I believe members of Jonah Patrol benefited from joints of meat of undisclosed origin during the era of rationing”.
