Same KAPE Tour we had marched through Brighton. That evening we were in the Sgts Mess at Preston Bks which was full of the old & Bold playing Bingo. Rick couldnt find the entrance and was trying to gain access through the french windows which I think were locked. All of a sudden the window flew open and Rick appeared. All assembled stared in amazement at this figure. Rick came smartly to attention and said. " Good Evening Drum Major Baker 3rd Bn The Queens Regiment". What a entrance. You could hang a potatoe sack on Rick and he would look smart as a carrot. Last saw him at Dave Dumbletons funeral last year in Norfolk.
