An email address for Mark Sefton who was at Lancaster University in the 1970s

Thanks,,,,,,,,,,,Graham Proudlove

I may be able to help get at that journal information for you.
Will email you now.

Langcliffe on here might have one or two ideas about tracing MS.

A Mark Sefton is a member of the Cave Exploration Group of South Australia.
I don't know if it is the Mark Sefton you are trying trace.

Will have SASA bulletins at the library - but they are Cape Section so not sure if this is what you want. I can check on Weds for you. Steve Craven might be a good person to try in the Cape - maybe he has contact details for Mark Sefton?

I'm in the Library at the moment and the full title of the Journal is The Bulletin of the South African Speleological Association, 1986 Issue, Vol. 27, No. 2.  Most of this journal is devoted to the results of an expedition to South West Africa/Namibia.  The ref. pp.55-99 is effectively the whole journal with a series of articles by different authors listed in the contents:
M.Sefton, C. Redmayne-Smith, J., Irish, J. Martini, A. Duffin, R. Ellis.

I have skimmed through the Journal and find there are two passing references to "rare blind cave fish" but no description of the fish itself.  The cave in which these fish occur is given as Aigamas Cave in the Otavi Mountains and pp. 91-92, as part of an article by M. Sefton, contain a description and survey of the cave.

Thankyou Jenny, very useful. Can either Jenny or Mary (no urgency at all) give me the authors, titles and page numbers for each of the individual articles.
