Dear Destination Viking Association Members and frinds working in the VikingWorld,
 
It is with great sadness that I write to advise that the Association’s Chairman, Jimmy Moncrieff, died on Sunday 5th February following a short illness.
 
Jimmy had been Chairman of the Association since its creation in 2007 and had been tireless in his efforts of expanding the awareness and knowledge of Vikings and their lasting legacy.  His proudest achievement in this regard was bringing the Follow The Vikings project to life and the project partners had just visited him and the team in Shetland for the latest seminar and to celebrate Up Helly Aa.  A great time was held by all and, especially, by Jimmy.
 
Regards
 
Björn Buttler-Jakobsen
Vice-Chairman, Destination Viking Association
