Jack Gray x162
is noted on the introduction to our wonderful website, to continue
the camaraderie that has been in existence for centuries. I now can
endorse that with the following story, your readers will no doubt
be aware of a story I wrote to the recent edition of the Blue Band,
it concerned a chance meeting with an "oldie" from the late
20s, Jack Gray x162, joined the RNSM in 1927, and went on through
the war years, and even had a stint on the Isle o' Man as a violin
instructor, that story in itself was rewarding to me, but is now surpassed
by a letter I received yesterday from ex B/M Eric Jackson X109, this
as a result of my earlier letter to the Blue Band.
Let's all rejoice in the knowledge that we are all part of this wonderful marvelous RM Band Service.
