It is with a great sadness that I inform the forum of the death of Chris Deith last Thursday 12th May whilst on holiday in Italy. He was not only a personal friend but also an important person in the Model Engineering world. He published Engineering In Miniture for several decades, wrote several books and published many more in the name of Tee Publishing, and was best known for organising exhibitions, under the banner of Meridienne Exhibitions. The Midland Model Exhibition, and Ally Pally ! His daughter Avril Spence has organised the exhibitions this last few years and there is no suggestion that his passing will affect this years MEX in October 2022.
It is to Briget his wife and Avril his daughter that I offer my most heart felt condolences. Noel.

An important person - for very valuable contributions to the hobby.

I am genuinely saddened by this news. I did not know Mr. Deith, except for a short conversation with him at one of his exhibitions, but I took his magazine regularly for years and have used the services of TEE Publishing on many occasions. The fact that he took the trouble to reprint and republish many informative and historical books, which otherwise would have been lost to many of us, proved to be very helpful to me and I suspect quite a few others. His exhibitions and the lectures that accompanied them were always of the highest standard and again provided valuable information that would have otherwise not been so readily available. Indeed a sad loss to our model engineering fraternity and my own personal thoughts and condolences are extended to his wife and family at this sad time.
