I know a lot of club members will have known Mike Brogden. He was a well respected Engineer with David Brown Tractors in the 60s, 70s and early 80s. I am sad to report that he passed away on December the 4th after a short illness. He was only 78.

So sorry to hear this news. Mike was a true legend of the British tractor industry, not just working for DB, but also with Leyland (where he was instrumental in the introduction of the Harvest Gold range) and then with Case-IH, where he was heavily involved in both the first and second generation Maxxums. A highly knowledgeable engineer with a wealth of experience. This is a great loss. R Day

This was sad news, may he rest in peace. I met Mike on several occasions both in Melham and in Neuss (Germany). He was a through gentleman and I always enjoyed our chats.
