|Ron learnt to dive in 1986 in Adelaide. After moving to Canberra he
joined the Belldivers and went to the Solomon Islands, the Pompey/Swain
Reefs on the Undersea Explorer, Lady Musgrave Island and Bunaken Island.
In 1993 he joined the ANUSC and after diving the NSW south coast and
more Musgrave trips did time as a Boat Officer and Vice Pres/Gear
Officer. Outside Australia he has dived in the Solomon Islands,
Indonesia, Tonga, Vanuatu, Fiji, Thailand, New Guinea, and French
Polynesia. He often dives with a camera so may miss things that don't
appear in the viewfinder. He has been an SSI Dive Controller for a
decade or so.|
