“It is with great sadness I have learned of Oliver’s  passing. We were, at last able to meet up at  Woburn Lido after many many email communications and our mutual love of lidos.  It was a privilege and great to meet up and will hold the memory.  He will be sorely missed not only in Lidoland and his Lido Yahoo Group,  but in his other major pursuits.  He was Curator of the Waterbeach Military Heritage Museum. A considerable loss “
