A final heartfelt thanks to Martyn and his father Ernest for the donation of a remarkable collection of documents and images relating to Ernest’s brother, Reuben. I have finally uploaded these documents as a jump off menu from Reuben’s logbook, which can be found in the logbook section of the site.

Many of these documents I have never seen before, so its well worth a look through them – if you recognise anything, or can add anything else by way of personnel identification or explanations regarding the documents, as always, I would love to hear from you.

Ernest and Martyn, once again, many thanks for your generosity.
