My name is Brian Jeffrey, although my name when I was on the DEWLine was Brian Simon, the latter being my adopted surname. I changed back to my birth name, Jeffrey, after leaving the DEWLine. I had been known as Brian Simon from about the age of six, to about 24, so anyone who worked with me on the DEWLine or who went to school with me in those early years will have no idea who Brian Jeffrey is (or where Brian Simon went!).
I served on the DEWLine from July 1960 until March 1963 when I went South for the last time. As I write this, some 48 years have gone by since I first heard about the DEWLine. This, then, is a stroll down one person’s memory lane with all the inaccuracies and embellishments that come with the passing of time.
In 2012 I had an opportunity to return to the DEWLine for one last time. The youngest technician to have gone to the DEWLine in 1960, I am probably the oldest DEWLiner to have ever returned. You can read all about that adventure in the Hall Beach 2012 section of this site. Enjoy.
