Maurice Allward

It has been a tough time for the Pitcairn Islands Study Group, UK. We have lost our Treasurer and now Maurice Allward, another of our committee members has passed away. Maurice was a great friend to Pitcairn and the Islanders with all the profits from his last book being given to the Island over the last few years.

When I first met Maurice I discovered that I already owned one of his books. It was about flying boats, another of my interests. Maurice was a fascinating person with so many fields of interest including being a long time member of the British Interplanetary Society, he will be missed by a great many people.
