Please see below a message that I received from our newest member bigjohn1985 who is the Nephew of Bernie Wood's.
Thank you John for allowing me to reproduce your message on the forum and welcome to the AMS.
Hi Im john and ive always been interested in model RC submarines and boats since I was very young in the early 90's but I guess that its hard not to be when Bernie wood was your uncle I saw so many wonderful models he built and I always thought one day im going to build one of my own. well that day has come and im finally ready to take the plunge and im just starting to gather all the info I can before starting the build I would have asked Bernie but unfortunately he is no longer with us so im going to have to take a dive in the deep end. I would love to join the AMS and be a part of Bernie's world lol. if you new him personally I still see Anita when ever we pop down Hythe in Kent and she is great and of really good health and she spends a lot of her time at Steven and Jackie's. I used to go down to Orpington boating pond with Bernie of a Sunday with the dolphin boat club I did try looking them up but cant seem to find anything on them so don't know if there still going. be nice to speak to people that new him well and that is happy to help as I new Bernie would have been. I look forward to speaking soon kindest regards John
