The WPO are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Johan Merckx, former Belgian WPO Board Member of 17 years and Chairman of Timekeepers.

Johan was a great friend and colleague and his most recent achievement at WPO was to restructure the lighting system.

Our sincere sympathies to his wife Gerda, his children and grandchildren and the Belgian Ploughing Committee. May he rest in peace.
