Bob Comlay- ' H W Tilman's maritime experiences'
'Bob Comlay was one of only a handful of crew-members who chose to return for a second voyage with Tilman, earning a level of trust that gives him unique insight into the true character of this self-effacing legend of twentieth century exploration. In 1997, Bob published a simple website containing images and anecdotes from the 1970 and 1971 voyages to West Greenland and East Greenland with later additions from a few other former Tilman crewmembers. While this hobby project remained incomplete, the level of interest that it drew from around the world over the past 12 years demonstrates the level of influence that Tilman and his travels still has on a wide variety of people. In recent years, the growth in interest has been significant, particularly amongst audiences of a new generation. John Mead’s 1981 TV documentary, ‘No Pay, No Prospects, not much Pleasure’ and Bob Comlay’s illustrated reminiscences, ‘Travels with Tilman’, have each been aired several times since Barmouth’s Tilman Festival’ weekend in May 2008 '
