John Desburough RIP 2014
« on: January 05, 2014, 10:58:48 PM »

It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that John Desburough a great modeller and member of the Runcorn & District Scale Model Boats passed away on Friday 3rd January. Our thoughts are with John's Family.

His talks at some of our monthly meetings were always to me of great interest and amazement at how he could make something look so good.

Regards
Larry

I did not know John, but it is always sad to lose one of the modelling community.
My condolences to the family.

One of the most innovative marine modelmakers I have ever met, he will be sorely missed.
