Dr. Hamish MacInnes, born in 1930, is an expert and renowned mountaineer, climber, documentarist and inventor (he designed the first folding stretcher and the first all-metal ice axe). Hamish developed the modern mountain rescue practices and is considered the father of the Search And Rescue Dog Association (SARDA). In 1965 and in 1980 respectively, Hamish received the British Empire Medal (BEM) and Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his services to mountaineering and mountain rescue.
