John Colls 1944-2013

John Colls

John passed away in the early hours of this morning, at Caritas Christi hospice in Melbourne. He took a turn for the worse on Tuesday night, and up until then he had been alert and lucid. John's recent book about the history of the Scottish 6 Days, "A Few Surplus Maps" demonstrated his passion for orienteering in Scotland, his enthusiasm will be missed.
