David Pelham

DPBretagnebIt is with great sadness that I have to convey the news that David passed away on Friday.


David was a founder member of the Y Type Register and served on the committee until standing down a year ago. He was the authority on the MG YT and passionately researched  the Tourer version of our cars. He was always ready to lend a hand to any owner in need of help or advice and he also wrote many articles to share his wide knowledge.


David had very strong opinions and beliefs about the way that the MGCC should be run and regularly kept us informed about the finer details of club affairs. He served as our PR officer in recent years where his skills were much appreciated by the whole Y community.


He will most recently be remembered for the excellent Tour of Brittany that he organised last year for 12 Y Types to retrace the footsteps of previous Y tours to the area.


David will be sorely missed by the many friends he had in the MG community. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his wife Shirley, and daughters Carole and Kirsty.


Peter Vielvoye, Chairman Y Type Register
