Looking for Muriel Robeson


BCA has received a request from Ed Saugstad in the US, who is looking for information on a UK caver (Muriel Robeson, from - at the time, Southall, Middlesex). She was on a trip in 1949 to a cave in Pocahontas County, West Virginia, and Ed is wondering if any UK cavers still have contact with her or any other details of the trip.

Thanks in anticipation,

Don't suppose you have any clues do you, such as club?

Malcolm Riley was actively caving in 1949 with the BSA - he also has a good memory. I'll probably bump into him at some stage so I'll try and ask him, if no-one else sorts this in the meantime.
