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.

 

 

Yeah, but one of the Bonzos is already gone. So we're well into single figures on this.

 

Have we established if the sessionist Gorilla is still alive.

One we missed. Willie C Jackson, the last original member of The Spaniels, died back in February. http://www.chicagotr...0225-story.html

 

And to think I was only watching the BBC Four series Rock 'n' Roll America and who is there in Episode 1? http://www.bbc.co.uk...-little-sixteen. I highly recommend this series if you want to put a team together for next year.

Great catch, great post. Appreciated Y-Dub. Mulligan was a big name in jazz back in the day.

The last of the Train Robbery Squad who investigated the 1963 Great Train Robbery, (then Detective Sergeant) Stanley "Steve" Moore, 88. http://www.thetimes...._medium=twitter

 

Probably the most dramatic arrest when he pursued Roy James across a rooftop. He became a DCI before he retired.
