Roger Whitehouse - April 29th, 2004

Dear Richard,

The attached photo was sent to me by Joe Simms who recently heard of Roger's passing. The picture was taken on their wedding day, and is sent to you with condolences from the old RM Band in, HMNZS Philomel 1957/60. Glenda was a RNZN Wren, and should she get hold of this message I will be happy to pass on, and reply to Joe and all Roger's friends here in NZ.

Meantime if this could be published it will be much appreciated.

Take care

All the best


Roger Whitehouse - April 29th, 2004

I am sad to report the death of Roger Whitehouse yesterday 29th April. He would have been 66 years old.

Roger remained musically active playing clarinet, bass clarinet and keyboards in the Broadstairs and St. Peters Concert Band, the Marlowe Concert Band, Railway Swing Band, Beverley Big Band and of course, the All Stars Band.

Roger was not able to play in this year’s concert but attended so that he could say goodbye to his friends as he knew he only had two months of his life left.

Stephen Misson
