I am very sad to inform everyone that Dr Trevor Ford, OBE died on the afternoon of 22nd February, just short of his 92nd birthday. Trevor was instrumental in the formation of the BCRA and was awarded Honorary Membership of BCRA in 1977 in recognition of his contribution to cave science and especially to publication. In 1997 Trevor was awarded an OBE for his services to geology and to cave science. There will be many tributes to Trevor over the next few weeks but for a brief appreciation, written to mark his 90th birthday, and a list of his cave-, karst- and mine-related publications (which will need updating as he continued his written output!) please see Cave & Karst Science 42(1), 2015, pages 3-5, online at http://bcra.org.uk/cks?j=124
John Gunn, Chairman, BCRA

We are preparing an obituary for Cave & Karst Science. If anyone has anything to share, please contact David Lowe, d.lowe@bcra.org.uk and please also consider posting your thoughts to the UK Caving obituaries page at http://ukcaving.com/board/index.php?board=76.0 where there are already quite a few postings.

Sad news he will be missed although he had a good innings.
