For those who may not already know Peter Willcock passed away just a few days ago,on the fourth of this month.
I did see this news elsewhere on the net and have struggled a little since to know how to respond,.....whether to quietly move on,or to perhaps stop to raise some small personal tribute.
I had made some small correspondence buy snail mail with Peter in the early 90's,over some Ballarat made machinery that I had found.
Peter at the time was working at keeping a comprehensive record of the Austral oil engine,surviving engines and production records etc,along with other company history.
This bloke was a real encouragement to any budding vintage machinery enthusiast,mostly by his own keen example.
He had at one time worked as a field service mechanic on the R&T engines that he was eventually to begin keeping count of.
I met him in person at Lake Goldsmith on one occasion.The little that I had to do with him gave me the impression that he was certainly a bloke with a very giving nature,and a true gentleman.
Thank you Peter.
