From Mr Neville Beale.

Sir, In your articles about the last annual meeting of Shell Transport and Trading, you report me as “a small . . . investor” asking which of the founders of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group in 1907 – Marcus Samuel and Henri Deterding – might be turning in his grave at the decisions just taken in London and The Hague (“Dutch uncles worry as oil group unites”, June 29).

However, I was also speaking as a former employee for some 30 years.

We Shell pensioners also have an interest in the good reputation and future prospects of an organisation to which we used to refer affectionately as “Joe Shell”.

Neville Beale, London SW3 5PN
