News: RIP Brian Groves, founder member of FDMC

Dickie Dale has emailed the Club with some sad news:

“Brian Groves died last night of a brain tumour.  He was a founder member and the first editor of the Club magazine.  After typing each page he printed them out on an old troublesome Gestetner machine, then sitting on his lounge floor we would staple them together and deliver some by hand.

His daytime job was Motoring Correspondent for the Daily Mail, from which he used to get interesting bits for our magazine. 

After leaving Farnborough he moved to Guernsey and made his
fortune in the Courts and then with Nissan (as a property buyer!). A while before he died he sold both his aeroplanes and his luxury boat!”

Email from Dickie Dale received 14th April 21.
