  • Nevill Swanson

    From Adam Wood :

    I’m deeply saddened to report that Nevill Swanson, great-grandson of Donald, passed away yesterday after a long illness. Nevill was a true champion of the book on his ancestor, unquestioningly providing unlimited access to family archive - quite simply, if not for him it wouldn’t exist. We had a lot of fun during our numerous meets, not least when we visited Thurso together to assist in the unveiling of the DSS memorial.

    It was a great honour to have been able to call him a friend. RIP Nevill

      That is sad news. Nevill had also been very kind in arranging for me to have access to some of the family material earlier on, in connection with Rob's and my Kozminski research.

        Extremely sad news. I knew Nevill and his father Jim. Both were always charming and very gracious men. My condolances to his family.
