A Bill Hughes Update
We are falling apart! Can we get a war pension from the Marines to cover all of this?
As promised here is a photo taken when we were in France last June. I was there with the Band for the 60th D-Day Landing events. We flew into London and Bruno Brown joined us and came over with us. When there guess who we ran into - Roy Kaighan. Here is a photo of Bruno and myself relaxing and Roy Kaighan in his work uniform. Also sent, one of me on a movie shoot with Gene Hackman just before my forced rest.
I had the Burlington Teen Tour Band (200 strong) who were the official Youth representatives from Canada and Roy was there with the Navy Band from British Columbia. We will be heading back overseas next May to Holland and Mr. Bruno Brown will be joining us yet again for a tour - you can't stay away from being on a bus!
Stephen [Ed: a mutual non ex RMB friend] too was in hospital as they got his blood pressure under control. It looks like we are all breaking down. With all the new parts we should be bionic very soon.
Will chat again soon Dickie and you look after yourself.
My prayers and wishes are with you.
