Many of you will know that Martin died on Sunday 24th February 2019, relatively peacefully, having been diagnosed with untreatable cancer in September 2018. The end came very quickly with all the family here, and until recently his quality of life was not too bad.
He was very stoical, and at least it gave him time to organise things, his favourite / best books went off to auction in October, and he was delighted when his archive went to the Natural History Museum at Tring where it might be of use to others.
Martin said some time ago after we told some of you he had cancer "I have had so many wonderful and touching emails that I would like just to say how very much I appreciate them."
A full obituary notice will be published in ABC Bulletin 26:2.
