RUSI is sorry to announce that its accountant of long standing, Alex Tindal, died suddenly over the weekend at home on 20 September 2009. He was 58 years old. Alex worked as RUSI's accountant for 17 years, starting in a part-time capacity in 1992 before becoming full-time in 2002. He was well-liked and was notable not just for his quiet efficiency but particularly for his dry sense of humour. He will be sadly missed by all his colleagues.
