Brian Guilmant RIP

It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that Brian Guilmant died this morning, 24th July 2020 in a hospice local to his home in Wimborne. Very many people in narrow gauge modelling will have met Brian in the course of his 40 year involvement in our hobby, being the founder and chief driver of the 009 Society second hand sales organisation; we have benefited immensely from his dedication and knowledge. He was also a stalwart member of the Wessex Narrow Gauge Modellers, hosting regular meetings and, in recent years, organising the Colehill exhibition. 

Under current circumstances the funeral will necessarily be a private affair, but our thoughts are with Muriel his wife and their daughter Lizzie. They have asked that their privacy be respected, so please do not contact them by phone.

Thank you Brian, our old friend, for all you have done for 009 modelling and 009 modellers – few have equalled your immense contribution. 

A full obituary will appear in due course.

Julian Evison (Chairman 009 Society)
