Obituary: Ray Mitchell and Michael Mills

]Sadly, we must also record the death of Ray Mitchell, husband of our secretary Dr. Brigitte Mitchell. Although not a member of the Group, Ray has always gave us his support and wrote his memories of the 1950s for Windlesora 20. He was one of our best salesmen and willingly moved people and things from place to place for us. We were cheered by his friendly smile and he could always see the best side of any situation. Our sympathies go out to Brigitte and all their family.

In a year that has been traumatic for the Grou, we have also lost Michale Mills, who wrote two articles on buses for us.
