| February/March 1993

It is my sad duty to report the death of MR. CHARLES CAWOOD on November 14, 1992.

Charley, as he was affectionately known to thousands of tractor and engine enthusiasts, together with his wife Sheila, was a regular sight on the country's rally fields. His caravan was a mecca for those requiring published information or just a few friendly words from his vast store of knowledge.

A regular tractor commentator at many events, his wit and personal opinions kept spectators and owners interested, amused and even outraged.

He was very proud of his position as a past chairman of the national executive committee of the National Vintage Tractor and Engine Club, honorary vice president and recent president of the East Yorkshire Group. He was closely associated with many other preservation organizations.

Irascible, knowledgeable, argumentative, helpful and an entertainer, he will be greatly missed by us all.
