Imut l-espert tal-għadis John Bevan

AĦBARIJIET TAD-DIVING

A vast amount of diving knowledge and experience has gone with the death of Dr John Bevan at the age of 77 – although the veteran UK diver has left behind a considerable body of work in jistampaw.

An acknowledged expert on diving history, Bevan was founding chair of the Historical Diving Society (HDS) and remained so until his death on 3 February. Messages of condolence were said to be pouring in to the society today. He was also the editor of DIVER rivista’s sister-publication Underwater Contractor International.

Wara li ggradwa fiż-żooloġija u l-fiżjoloġija fl-1967, Bevan qatta' ħames snin jaħdem għall-Ministeru tad-Difiża, u sar kap tat-Taqsima tal-Fatturi Ambjentali fis-Servizz Xjentifiku Navali Rjali.

Matul dan iż-żmien, f'Marzu 1970, hu u l-kollega Peter Sharphouse stabbilixxew rekord dinji ġdid ta 'għadis fil-fond mingħajr ma jixxarrbu fil-Laboratorju Fiżjoloġiku RN, meta qattgħu 10 sigħat f'fond simulat ta' 457m ta 'ilma baħar.

L-għaddasa kienet 90m aktar profonda milli kien imbassar possibbli dak iż-żmien, u kienet milqugħa internazzjonalment bħala "inżul iperbariku tal-Qamar".

Bevan also gained a master’s degree in the neurophysiology of deep diving in 1970, and would continue working in the diving industry for the next 50 years. Qualifications acquired along the way included Royal Navy Ship’s Diver Officer, Professional Diver, Saturation Life-Support Supervisor and BSAC First Class Diver & National Diving Istruttur.

His next role was as technical manager in the taħriġ & safety department of Comex, the French engineering specialist in deep-diving operations, and he later became diving consultant at Comex John Brown.

Fl-1976 waqqaf konsulenza dwar l-inġinerija taħt l-ilma fuq is-sura tiegħu stess fil-forma ta’ Submex, kumpanija li kompliet tippubblika l-Manwal tal-Professional Diver ta’ Bevan li kien għadu influwenti.

In 1990 he gained his doctorate, in the development of diving equipment. This was also the year that saw the inauguration of the HDS, with Bevan as chair. The idea of the society sprang from a letter published in DIVER rivista by the diver who became its secretary, Nick Baker.

Matul is-snin, Bevan serva bħala chairman kemm tal-BSAC Jubilee Trust kif ukoll tas-Soċjetà għat-Teknoloġija ta’ taħt l-Ilma Diving & Manned Submersibles Committee. Sar ukoll maniġer tal-kollezzjonijiet tad-Diving Museum f’Gosport, Hampshire, fejn kien ibbażat ma’ martu Ann.

Il-kotba u l-monografi tiegħu dwar l-għaddasa kmieni u t-tagħmir tal-għadis inklużi L-Għasad Infernali, L-Ewwel Teżor Għaddas, u Kummerċ ieħor ta' Whitstable. Kiteb ukoll Operazzjoni Tadpole, li ttrattat it-torpidows umani tal-Gran Brittanja tat-Tieni Gwerra Dinjija.

F'nofs l-2019, sa dak iż-żmien Bevan kien diġà qed jiġi kkurat għall-kanċer, huwa ppubblika l-aħħar ktieb tiegħu Crabbgate, dwar l-għaddas kontroversjali Brittaniku (u parti mit-tim Tadpole) Lt-Cdr Lionel Crabb.

Crabb spiċċat fuq missjoni ta 'spjun MI6 fl-1956, u industrija tat-teorija tal-konfoffa kibret madwar l-inċident, iżda r-riċerka tipikament metikoluża u l-ħidma msejsa ta' Bevan heddew li jkunu l-aħħar kelma dwar is-suġġett.

Kif qal DIVER dwar l-aħħar ktieb ta’ Bevan: “Ma’ Crabbgate, hu jwaħħal labra kunfidenti fil-bużżieqa ta’ teoriji farfetch.”
