It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Adrian ‘AJ’ Jefferies of James Walker.

AJ was completely unique. He had a brain the size of a planet, there wasn’t any subject he couldn’t explain (or indeed make more complicated), he was completely and utterly irreverent, and was never more than a hair’s breadth from bursting into crinkle-eyed childlike laughter.

He never suffered fools gladly, referred to anyone new or inexperienced as a ‘shiney’ and must have been an absolute nightmare to manage. Which, by the way, he’d acknowledge and be very proud of.

AJ was the BVAA’s Seals WG chair and Seals course lecturer. He will be sorely missed by all that knew and loved him.

We will announce funeral arrangements as we get them.
