Our Chairman has received a letter from Dr E. J.W. Jones regarding a June Reunion in London  at the Naval Club London :-

 


 

RRS Discovery

Reunion of Officers and Scientists: R.R.S. Discovery International Indian Ocean Expedition 1963 ( London , June 2013)

 I am organizing a reunion at the Naval Club, London , of officers and scientists who participated in a pioneering scientific expedition to the Indian Ocean aboard R.R.S. Discovery in 1963.  At that time the vessel operated under the RFA.


As this is the 50th anniversary of the expedition, I am trying every means of finding those who participated aboard Discovery.  At present, I have located six RFA officers who have indicated that they want to attend the reunion in June.  I therefore write to enquire whether the RFA Association might be able to help in finding the following officers whom I have been unable to contact.


Bretherton, Mike (3/E)
Bryce, Andy (Elect. Off.)
Champion I. M. (Tony) (Rad. Off.)
Green, Anthony J. (J/Eng.)
Holden, Derek (3/E)
Mackay, Don (2/Elect.)
Massey, David (Rad. Off.)
Sutton, John (J/Elect.)

Any assistance the RFA Association could give would be much appreciated.  I can be contacted by post at my college address above or by college email (ejw.jones@ucl.ac.uk).  
I am officially retired so not by the telephone very much.
 

I have also put a signed copy of this letter in the post.


Yours sincerely
 

E. John W. Jones
