I got to know Bev as a member of the Geographical Club, a dining club associated with the Royal Geographical Society. Bev generously provided venison from Jura for the table, as well as a case of damson gin, produced by a local distillery from damsons growing on his farm. As a result, Bev introduced me to the art and skill of stalking on Jura and we enjoyed annual trips there over the last ten years.
Bev was a great supporter of the Club as well as the RGS acting as Expedition Medical Officer on numerous major Society expeditions. He will be much missed and I valued the happy times I was privileged to spend with him.
