RIP Peter Harding AKA "The Duke"

Sad to of the passing of Peter..... I remember him from my childhood in Benghazi through into my teen years. Even when my dad had moved on from the 14th/20th Band they still kept in contact and we used to visit him on occassions when we were in London.... certainly a gentleman and a character...... he could be funny and entertaining and as with all of us infuriating at times (he could wind my dad up) ... but we had a deep affection for The Duke and his idiosyncratic ways. He used to make my mum smile when he wanted to borrow her sewing machine, his had been in a crate and they had hammered a 6" nail through it on it's way to Benghazi..... I used to pester him to let me play his piccolo..... many memories... RIP Peter off to the Big Band in the sky. Rxx
