Fondly remembered by all the local engineering staff who worked with Dick when he was Chief Engineer at Bristow Sumburgh in the mid seventies. PS and all the great parties in the "portapub".

Condolences to Bridget and family. During my visit to Karratha when the Puma flew into the sea, Dick and Bridget took me on a tour of Perth and Fremantle, very nice afternoon. Dick will be missed.

R.B "Dick" Jones

On behalf of Dick's family I wish to extend our thanks for the kind words and remembrances. The response on this and other networks from friends and acquaintances near and far has simply been overwhelming. The fact that he is remembered so fondly by so many over the length and breadth of his life is a sign of what a wonderful man he was.
Again our thanks.
Martin Jones

Dick Jones (the second "Dick Jones" I ever met working with Bristow) was a great mentor for all the young lads in Australia. The other was the "Vomiting Vicar" in Bristow Aberdeen.

Cheers Dick, you were a great guy to be around and a legend to me and my like. RIP you will be missed.

A very sad loss to many. Dick was as well as being one the best Chief Engineers in Oz, a great supporter of his “boys” and a true leader. RIP.
