It is with a heavy heart and a flood of tears that we acknowledge the passing of our dear friend and Y-Type enthusiast Steve Brompton of Sydney on 28th December 2020. We send our love and prayers to Lynne and all the family. We will never forget you Steve and how you and Lynne started our Down Under Anniversary gatherings with the 50th back in 1997 - we, as Y-Typers owe you so much..
I was fortunate to be able to host Steve when he came to Washington on a school trip a few years ago and it was great to meet up with him again in 2017 at the 70th anniversary celebrations. A great Y owner too. Our sympathies to his family.
Another great picture from Alan Chick provides this month's Picture of the Month. from the 2018 MGCC Y register summer run in Llandovery area of Wales.
