It is with great sadness that we learnt of the death, during the night of Saturday, March 2 to Sunday, March 3, of our friend Boudewijn Dom, known to many people as "B.Dom". A few months ago he was diagnosed with vascular dementia disease, an incurable disease, and by strange coincidence, the same disease that affects the founder of Radio Caroline Ronan O'Rahilly. But a week ago, Boudewijn suffered a brain haemorrhage and fell into a coma. We are obviously in shock. In addition to having been a great friend appreciated by all, and a great lover of offshore free radio at sea, Boudewijn was also one of the pillars of France Radio Club since the very beginning 45 years ago. He was a very great photographer and a great number of his photos have been published over the years in our magazine and elsewhere. We will pay a more complete tribute to him in the coming weeks.

Our condolences go to his widow Anne, and son Ronan."
