It is with sadness that I have to announce that John Welbourn late KOYLI passed away on 21 May 2018 age 89 after losing his battle with dementia. Our thoughts and condolences are with John's family at this sad time for them.
John's granddaughter, Polly, asked that we print the follow:
"We are saddened to announce the passing of our fantastic Dad, Grandad, Cousin, Brother. 'Duke' will be deeply missed by all that knew him. A proud man who sadly lost his battle with dementia at the age of 89. An ex serviceman who never forgot his time serving. Reunited with his wife Megan and son Lee, and if we don't see you again, Hello. X"
John your duty done take your place in the Final RV and rest in peace. The bugle sounds No More Parades. Cede Nullis.
