In Memoriam – Alan Furness

the Late Alan Furness
It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that Alan Furness, one of our long standing members, passed away on Monday morning (28th March) after a long illness. He will be missed by all who new him. Although over the past couple of years Alan was not been able to attend club days at Setley, he continued to supported our exhibitions with his models. He was an excellent model maker and I was always amazed at the way he was able to utilise ordinary household items into his models, most memorable was his cargo boat with a hull constructed from used drinks cans, a true feat of model engineering! Our sympathy and thoughts go out to his wife Pam and his family at this sad time. – David McNair-Taylor, Scale Section Captain.
