Descent (137), August 1997

If Music be the Food of Love, Cave On

There's cave-dedicated music beyond the obvious Hebrides Overture, if you know where to look. The problem is, the songs tend to be somewhat excruciating.

The Limestone Enchantress

When Bruce Sinclair won a holiday in the Descent Caption Competition he headed for the French Vercors. This is his tale, and an overview of the area to whet the appetite of other cavers wanting to drink beer in the sun between trips underground.

Fe, Phai, Ho, Hum

Join the team and Paul Callister for their triumphs in Vietnam: 'Did it go?' shouted Howard. 'Yes'. 'Was it big?' 'Yes'. 'Is it still going?' 'Yes!' I shouted triumphantly.

Then Came the Call

As a cave diver, Rob palmer was larger than life; he dreamed large, and made it happen. His books and accomplishments remain to remind us of the stories and the man who lost his life doing what he loved best. Here are tributes from his friends and colleagues to add to our memories.

Ex Libris

Alan Jeffreys reminisces of halcyon days, rooting through old club journals.
