Should we mourn its passing?

I learned to drive in a Defender and passed my test in one. For a while it served as the company car – the vehicle I drove to our wedding when my taxi failed to arrive. A neighbour has recently taken delivery of his last, a long wheel base version; two other neighbours also drive Defenders. Its demise is sad but inevitable. Perhaps, like Royal Enfield and Triumph, the Defender will rise under another flag?
