Sad news received tonight is that Michael Crowdy, founder and, in recent years, President Emeritus, of the World Ship Society, died on 22 December, pre-deceased by his wife Ona in September. He founded WSS as the Ships News Club in 1947.

That is sad news, Ron, his name so well known and an inspiration for all who took up an interest in ships.
He has stepped down as Chairman a little before I joined the WSS Council (for a few years) in late 1990's but he was kind enough to send a very fine pen & pencil set, I thought that was really nice for a man who was never likely to meet me. His Kendal address seemed to have been with him forever!
