F J Brymer

F J Brymer has died in hospital in Sussex, following a stroke. After illness had dogged his youth he recovered, to the extent of driving his open cars in the depth of winter in open-neck shirts. He was a railway enthusiast, but his main pursuit was photography of motoring competitions of all kinds, especially the MCC trials, in which he had been a competitor with his Riley Monaco. He later used a Riley Gamecock, a very draughty car, as WB can testify, because he became a close friend of Jim Brymer and went with him on many long runs in this car, often through winter nights. The news came as a great shock, and WB extends his deepest sympathy to Brymer’s daughter, with whom he lived at his cottage in Chiddingly.
