Bob Jones

Very much 'our man in Liverpool' Bob has had tremendous success in that city both finding Confederate grave sites and also in getting council ( America = local government) support .
Bob has done most of the local organisation regarding events in Liverpool. Partly because of his contacts and partly cos he's the best man for the job.
He is also the man most people think of first when they hear someone talking about the 'Trail'. This is something Bob has been interested in for many years and both locals and overseas visitors have been taken on the trip around the Confederate history related sites in Liverpool.
Bob is often the first point of contact regarding ourselves when overseas visitors arrive in Liverpool, in fact on the most recent occasion Bob had a nasty accident leaving him with various facial injuries. On meeting some visitors at the airport Bob had the misfortune to fall and injure himself. This was only 2 or 3 days before the Lt. Bulloch dedication and we were pleasantly surprised when he recovered enough to take part in the event . Only just however ,as he still looked like he had lost a bout of boxing!
Bob's biggest success has been in his meetings and communication with the council members , or some of them , in Liverpool.
Bob is very interested in the history of Liverpool , especially the maritime connection with the Confederacy .
Even though Neville and I are heavily involved in orchestrating events 'on the day ' as it were, and Jerry is heavily involved in the SUV/UDC/SUVCW liasing in America ...it is Bob who has been the most heavily involved in organising events in the Liverpool area.
With the interest shown at the July 18 event and events planned for 2010 in his area, Bob can look forward ( ???) to some more organisation in 2010 and beyond.
