When I looked at the WS - as I do every day to see who is the latest
to have gone to the celestial concert hall - I felt a touch of deja-vu
when I saw Les Sandy as having died August 2007. So I went to my ever
expanding database and, sure enough, there he was, complete with photo,
having been reported in BB 2/03 page 100 (Blue Band Summer 2003) as
having died in Cardiff, NSW in April 2003.
RMB/X 1912 Leslie Sandy, joined in 1942, 80 squad, Served RNSM Isle
of Man, St George, Ajax, Orion, Mauritius, Heron, Gamecock & Vengeance.
Instrumental category was not stated. He must have "taken his
twelve" and gone out in the early-mid 50's then emigrated.
Funeral was at St Thomas' church, Cardiff, NSW on 1 May 2003 at 1415;
so that seems pretty definite.
