Chris Thomson died.
List of UK Travelling Overseers in 2013
In case anyone misses this, Tim has posted a complete list from 2006 here http://www.jehovahs-witness.net/watchtower/beliefs/244582/1/Bethels-Official-List-of-UK-COs-and-DOs-in-2006
Travelling Instructors: COs used to do the pio. schools, elder's schools MTS schools and the like. Now Chris Jolley is doing that full time and will be for three years. They have designated him Travelling Instructor.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->• <!--[endif]-->Rupert Bradbury Died must be 30 years ago.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->• <!--[endif]-->Denis Harman Retired or evaporated ditto
Rupert Bradbury is still alive and well and is in his early eighties. He and his wife are still running their Art business, selling their paintings. They are still in regular contact with a friend of mine.
Denis Harman is still going, must be older though, he is an elder somewhere in the Folkstone area.
So let me get this right do any COs do teaching in any Schools?

Re. Rupert Bradbury: Sorry George the Bradbury's were close family friends. I stayed with them as a kid in their house in Bearsden, Glasgow. They built a house near Loch Lomond in the sixties and I stayed with them there.
He was a brilliant man, totally independent minded. Had he still been alive (and he is not) he would I think be a contributor to this site.
Please be assured that he has been dead for many years, his wife, Margaret is living rather grandly somewhere down south. I could check where, a family member stayed with her not so long ago. In short he is definitely deceased.
so were 2 CO's DF'ed in the UK within the last couple of years C Bird and the other one ?
names i remeber from 40+ years ago:
ron drage (say no more )
peter ellis--seemed a nice guy.
i think those 2 are at the UK headquarters.
