It is with the utmost sadness and regret that we have to report the sudden death of one of our long-time volunteers Dave Dee on Thursday 23 January.
Dave had worked on the project for many years and was a key member of our riveting team. Although big in personality, he was not so in stature so often found himself being the one to crawl into small spaces with the ‘holding-up’ gun but always did so with a smile.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends, of which he had many at the Railway. His passing has been a great shock to us all but has increased our determination to get 4253 back in steam in memory of our good friend.
A colleague has started a JustGiving page to raise donations for the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance in memory of Dave.
