Norman Dewis 1920 - 2019

The FELLOWSHIP of the Motor Industry joins with the motor racing world and the wider motor industry in mourning the passing of Norman Dewis OBE, a good friend of the FELLOWSHIP, at the age of 98.

Fellows who were present the last time that Norman gave a talk to the FELLOWSHIP will never forget his extraordinary recall of his 51-year career in the British Motor Industry.

Norman started his career in the motor industry in 1934 at the age of 14 when he walked into the Humber plant and asked for a job. After a year, he moved to Armstrong Siddley where he started an apprenticeship at the age of 15.
