We are very sad to confirm that Desmond Peacock, President of the Register has died. He passed away peacefully during the morning Saturday 10th December. Desmond was a lovely, gentle, generous and a very knowledgeable gentleman who helped many in their quest to own, restore and enjoy their Amilcars. His contribution to the Register and to members worldwide was immense. He will be sorely missed.

Glen Robb editor of the Amilcar Salmson Register is interested to learn whatever happened to another Vietnam find: “While on the subject of cars in Vietnam, I was contacted some 7/8 years back by an American (still alive) who had found this car but wanted to know more about it. I told him as much of the history and asked him to make further contact. I wrote about it in our magazine but heard no more from the American. He would not say where he or the car was and perhaps if we have someone read PreWarCar from there they may have heard or seen the car.”
