Position within Council

Elected Member.

Profile

Richard has been a PSPS member since 1963, has been a member of Council for previous periods and has served as volunteer seaman and shop keeper on board Waverley and Balmoral.

He has a deep fascination for historical research and is author of a number of books on British paddle steamers, as well as contributing articles to ‘Paddle Wheels’ and other maritime journals.

His involvement with the PSPS Archive is a natural extension of this historical interest, and he is keen to see the archive develop into the largest, best-known and most accessible repository for paddle steamer material in the UK.
