    Default Drew

    I have just spoken with Jean, Drew Dunn Respects mum. It is with deep regret and a heavy heart I have to inform the community, that Drew was involved in a serious road traffic accident today close to his home and died at the scene.
    Jean asked me to let his friends know and all the people at BCUK who's friendship and guidance he treasured. There are no details as yet and the police are still investigating, as soon as I know I'll post further updates. Jean expressly wanted the members of BCUK to know how much he loved his bushcrafting and how important you all were to him. This year was going to be the first time he'd have missed the moot since he began attending in about 2007 IIRC. From a personal point of view Drew was a good lad and taken far too young. He had his faults and annoyed more than one of us, but there was no malice in his body and I don't think he even knew the concept of how to hurt anyone. I for one will miss him (and the hat) and wherever you are mate, I hope there are clear skies, a comfy hammock and a roaring fire. See you on the flip side Mate. Rest In Peace.

    That is such sad news...

    Drew was a guy with a heart of gold who always wanted to help others as much as possible. I for one will definitely miss him.

    Rest in peace Drew..

    I'm lost for words. He was a good face and brightened my time at the Bushmoot. He will be missed both at 'The Moot' and on the forum. My condolences to friends and family.

    RIP wee man, gone but not forgotten.

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind always be at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    and rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet in the next world
    May your gods hold you in their hand.

    Ahh Drew

    Just a big eternal boy, masses of enthusiasm, loved getting involved, loved being around people.

    Sleep in peace Drew.

    I don't know what to say. I never met him, but that news has just ruined a good day. BCUK will miss him greatly.

    No, I cannot believe it.

    People like Drew are too full of life to die.

    I'm shocked too, never met Drew but spoke with him through the ethernet and only recently we became friends on fb.
    Was really looking forward to meeting him at some point.
    My sincerest thoughts go to his family and friends.

    So sorry to hear of this tragic news. Drew was at the first meet I attended and we shared interests in canals and several other areas.

    He will be missed from our camp fire.

    That's just taken me a while to register. I still cant quite comprehend it.

    Drew, may the wind be on your back and the sunshine always on your face, you will be sadly missed.

    Sad sad news , my family and I met Drew at comrie croft new year 11/12 ,
    what a great guy annoying at times but that just made him all the more endearing.
    I will miss his posts as you could hear his voice in the way he wrote . He had more enthusiasm in his little finger than I have in my whole body.

    Thoughts go out to his family and friends , the world and bcuk will be a duller place without him.


    Craig & Jen ...... Respect.
