Where is Bob?
8th May 1963 – It was on this exact date 50 years ago that a Founder Members’ Meeting took place which formed “The Society for Radiological Protection” for which the approved abbreviation is ‘SRP’.
Happy 50th birthday SRP from Everest (which was first climbed 60 years ago this month).
When I am not off on expeditions or gallivanting, my main field of work is in radiological protection and hence my professional interest in the success of the SRP as a learned society.
Whilst out here on Everest I am making a series of cosmic radiation measurements to further the scientific knowledge of radiation fields at high altitudes and the associated impact(s) (if any) on UK expedition companies. A further blog post on this study will follow in due course.
Recently the SRP have launched a Benevolent Fund to help support it’s members (and families) in various ways. Please help celebrate the SRP’s 50th birthday by making a donation today to their Benevolent Fund – this charity is one of three that I am trying to raise money for during my attempt on Everest. Please click here to make a donation to the SRP Benevolent Fund today. Thank you.
