Bob Campbell bequest

In the last RopeSignal we recorded the sad news of the passing of Bob Campbell.  Now we learn that Bob has remembered the society in his will, bequeathing us his comprehensive collection of demand valves, many of them of great rarity, as well as a large quantity of spares, tools, handbooks, drawings and his personal diving library of some 300 books.  The bequest will form an invaluable addition to the society’s collections, providing rare items for the museum displays and a vital resource for research on the history and development of demand valves, now and for future generations.
