It is with the deepest regret that I am notifying members of the death of the long standing Coastwatchers member and leader Martyn Phillips. Martyn died after another battle with cancer
On behalf of the Association I pass on my deepest condolences to Jan and Martyn’s family.
Martyn has filled a critical part in the management of the Association over a 16 year period, and the Association acknowledges that enormous voluntary contribution with extreme gratitude.
Martyn joined the Management Committee in 1991-92, and became the Vice President the next year. He continued in that role until 1994-95 when he became the Association’s President for 2 years. He then stepped back for a year before becoming President again in 1997-98. Martin stepped up again for the Presidency in 2004-05, and remained on the Management Committee until 2008.
