Staff Bandmaster Les Jordan RMB X1331
It is with much regret that I have to inform you of the passing of Les Jordan on the 1st June 2004 after a prolonged illness, which he suffered stoically. I knew him for many years both as a personal friend and also as a band service colleague, having served as his Band Sgt. aboard the Newcastle. I can assure you that a more genial and likeable person would be hard to find. Professional in every respect. His passing is a great loss to everyone who came in contact with him.
