With sadness and shock we have to report the death of Dave Wyatt.

Dave was one of the stalwarts in the Sons of the Desert. I first met him in 1975 at a film collectors' convention in London. We had a lot in common, especially our love of Laurel and Hardy. Dave invited me to write for a film collectors' magazine which he was setting up and our paths entwined ever since, both of us ending up currently as regular contributors to The Perry Winkle magazine.

Dave's achievements were legendary, as a film historian, author and film collector extraordinary. I photographed him (above) at the Sons UK Convention in May 2018, when he screened the newly discovered reel of The Battle of the Century.

We will miss Dave enormously.
