To those of you who have collections of old motoring magazines, I wonder if you could help. I am looking for an obituary for Herbert Austin who died in May 1941. If anyone could point me to anything in say, Austin Magazine, Autocar, Motor or MotorSport, I would be very grateful...

many thanks...

A copy of his obituary from the Times is here:

This is from the IMechE in 1942:

Hope this helps.  There are probably quite a few more out there.
I signed up for the Motor Sport archive ages ago, which seemed to be getting slower and slower. Last night trying to find the obit you mentioned, the website came to a halt, and showed a sign saying it had a pit stop for improvement. Anyone else having the same problem?
