Phil Townsend, (Pembroke 1979-82, Secretary 1980-81), expedition 1981 and 1982. Phil was one of the small hard core of the expedition capable of getting to the bottom of Stellerweghöhle as it headed down to -900m. Unfortunately, a career in rather far-flung places prevented his coming on expo again for the somewhat gentler caving of the following years.
The photograph was taken at his wedding in the unlikely setting of Coire Lagan, far from the road in Skye, with the lay preacher from Kintail (and his dog !) officiating.
