Mr Eric (Spike) Davies - Late KOYLI Band

It is with great sadness that I have to inform members that Mr Eric Davies, known as Spike, late KOYLI band passed away on 15 June 2024 aged 82.

Eric was a Corporal in the KOYLI Band. He was a respected member of the Band and within the KOY/LI Band and Bugle Club.

Our thoughts and condolences at the sad time are with Eric’s wife Margaret, family and friends, and those former KOYLI Band and Bugles members who knew and served with him.


As the bugle sounds 'No More Parades' and you take your place in the FRV,

your duty done with honour and distinction.

Rest in Peace Eric.

Cede Nullis.
