This week must unfortunately start on a sombre note. Last week we had word that Clive Frost has died following a Covid-19 infection. Clive was a member of BSAC 406 back in the dim and distant past. He never left the country, instead since 1975 he has concentrated his energies on “Aqua Diving Services”, a diving company of which he was the founder and Managing Director. In these latter days, Clive is perhaps best known to us as the owner of the “Dara”, our perennial and favourite dive site.
Our sympathies go to his family.
Since the last email, I’ve seen and heard many expressions of sadness and sympathy over the death of Clive Frost.
I will print two of these, the first from John Lewis:
Very sad news about Clive FrostClive was my business partner and the first person I met in Dubai in 1974. He and I worked together up to the point I left the UAE in 82.
And from Stuart Shaw:
Ian, thanks for your updates, just an expression of sadness on learning that Clive has passed away, I knew him as a dynamic new arrival at 406 in around 1975, he employed a good friend of mine, Mark Haine when he left the army and that was the situation when I left the UAE in 76. For those that knew Mark I discovered from his Regiment in 82 whilst I was in Northern Ireland that Mark had died in west Africa sometime before 82.RIP .Stuart.
It’s always good to hear from past members. It’s just a shame that it was Clive’s death that was the cause of this particular exchange.
