Notice from Simon Jones:-
Quote
Mick Latimer died peacefully in Hobart after a short illness following a severe stroke 15 months ago. He was 83.

He was the first chairman of AUK to be elected democratically when AUK first formed its committee and achieved a great deal in those early days.

He was also one of the Brindisi Seven:-
"1984 Seven AUK members made an international impact with a successful assault on the ultra-long Brindisi-Calais Diagonale. The ‘Brindisi Seven’ were - Mark Brooking, Ray Craig, Peter Crump, Simon Doughty, Simon Jones, Mick Latimer, Jane Ramsdale." (from AUK history)

Yes this is very sad news indeed. Chairman Mick did a lot for AUK in its early years. El Supremo will be visiting Chris (CCP) Davies in a couple of weeks en route to the southern reunion in
Salisbury (organised of course by Postie) and will convey the sad news to him.  Chris (along with Neville & others on Tour) visited Mick when he moved to Tasmania many years ago. Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Dave

Had the pleasure of riding in Mick's company in my early riding days usually with Ken Almond alongside. Good company and merry tales. Always a welcome at Salisbury Hostel too for a weary two wheeled traveller.
I have not seen the article in Arrivee but would be pleased to get the chance to if convenient for anyone who has a copy, please.
