MGCC Western Australia
Attached is the latest Octagon magazine from the Western Australian club. My thanks to Doug Bush for supplying. There is an interesting article by Peter Mittler on the benefits of a shading device in high levels of sunlight. Peter will be familiar to many club members as he is a well-traveled regular at overseas events.

2016 January fvThe Western Australian club’s magazine.
Australia: the Pre-War MG Newsletter, November 2016.
Contains many items, but in particular an article on Womens’ reliability trials, and an article on MG globetrotter Dave Godwin’s experiences with his recently purchased TA.pre-war-mg-newsletter-november-2016
Australia: the Pre-War MG Register Newsletter, July 2016.
Articles on a couple of splendid VA Tourers, the Chequered History of J3763, and the Milano Mgs of 1959. What a surprise, a gull-winged MG utilising Morris Minor boot hinges and a Triumph Herald rear window for the windscreen. A genuine parts bin item.
Bulletin of the MGCC Wellington, N.Z. Dec/Jan 2016
Article on maintenance of winscreen wiper motors for ’60s and 70s cars, and an article on a very unusual MGRV8 – GT! Also a cautionary tale regarding ice machines which catch fire – unlikely to be an issue in the UK for most of the year.mg-bulletin-dec-jan-1
The following are well worth a look. To some extent the non-UK magazines manage to include fascinating articles which through lack of space Safety Fast is unable to include. Gary Wall’s report is worth reading by T owners, and an interesting piece on Pressed Steel.
The Otago, N.Z., Autumn 2015 magazine.
Focus on two outstanding SAs, and reproduction of an MGA road test report.15060214otagonewsletter

At the 2015 Annual General Meeting of the Car Club, the Overseas Director, Paul Plummer tendered his resignation from that position. Paul has carried out that role for the past six years and he felt that it was time to step down and let somebody else take the reins. Paul has remained as Director and member of the board of the MGCC UK and has assumed individual project responsibilities as they have arisen.
Paul very much enjoyed the events run by our affiliated clubs and met many wonderful like-minded enthusiasts, and to all those friends and colleagues around the world he wishes them, and Safety Fast!
At the same AGM, Peter Cook was elected as a Director of the club and takes on the Overseas role. Peter has been a member of the club for eight years, has owned a MGBGTV8 for 35 years, and latterly was the Chairman of the Devon and Cornwall Centre. He wrote a two-part article on William Morris, Lord Nuffield which was published in Safety Fast! in the May and June issues, 2013.
Brought up in Oxford Peter’s father worked at what is now the Mini plant. His own lack of enthusiasm for factory work took him off to university where he studied economics. This in turn led to over three decades of teaching in various university Business Schools until recent retirement.
Peter is very committed to building on the already considerable MGCC presence outside of the UK, and where possible to enhance the Club’s services to overseas members.
Peter can be contacted at the following,
Tel: 01566 775991
Address: ‘The Allans’, 51a, Dunheved Road, Launceston, PL15 9JF. U.K.
To all our overseas colleagues, please address any future communications to Peter.
