Paul Royle, WW2 great escaper has died in Australia (reported on BBC this morning)

 

Only Dick Churchill from that famed escapade continues to breath, and is - therefore - hugely obitable when he goes.

With the death of Val Doonican, that leaves Eric Clapton and Princess Anne as the only two people mentioned in the lyrics of "The Intro and the Outro" (except for the Bonzos themselves) to still be with us.

Have we established if the sessionist Gorilla is still alive.
