Bill Toozs-Hobson

August, 2009

It is with great regret that we must report the death on 10th July of Trustee, Bill Toozs-Hobson. Bill was deeply involved in numerous areas of the Museum’s administration and a most valuable member of the team. Born on 6th April 1934, he joined the RAF in 1954 and after pilot training flew a variety of aircraft eventually becoming a Hastings captain. He left the Service in 1972 and, after qualifying as a solicitor three years later, practised in turn as an assistant, solo practitioner and senior partner. He acted as solicitor to the Museum between 1997 and 1999 and became a volunteer in 2001 after retirement. Bill’s wise counsel and friendship will be sorely missed.
