Sad news. Longstanding WoSARS and RCS Member Tommy, GM3VBT (Logan) is now a silent key (SK – 24th January).  Though not able to attend the Club’s meetings for the last couple of years due to Covid restrictions and failing health, members were kept aware of how he was faring via amateur and family sources. With the Club meetings having resumed, he will be sadly missed on a Friday night both at Rose Street and down at the ‘pub’ (The Bon Accord) afterwards. His funeral will be held on 7th February at 11.30 am, Clydebank Crematorium. All are welcome to attend.
