ScotWays is saddened to hear of the recent death of John Dow, at the age of 89.

John Dow may be best remembered for participating in almost 100 sorties for the RAF during World War II, for which he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Distinguished Flying Medal. In later years, John became an active supporter of the Society, and he was out virtually every week making a point of walking rights of way in order to help safeguard their status. A keen participant in our Walks programme, he also cycled from Land’s End to John o’ Groats at the age of 72.

We are grateful to John for his contribution to our work.
