KEN REES

Ken’s funeral is to take place on the 9th June, but due to restrictions it will be attended by his family only, unless things change before then.  The club  will let you know if, at some later date there will be a chance to celebrate his life.

Ken had two children, daughter Sam and son Christian and three grandchildren.

 

Should you wish contact details for his widow Lynne, contact the secretariat.

 

MICHAEL GREEN

The Club is still awaiting details of Michael’s funeral.  Michael had three children, son Oliver (Olly), daughter Xanthe, and son Freddie and six grandchildren. Should you wish contact details for his widow Judy, please email  the seretariat.

 

The Club would ask that tributes to Ken and Michael be emailed to Newsletter Editor Julian Wilkins for inclusion in the next Newsletter.  The Club is sure the families would find comfort in reading them.

Ken Rees

The club has heard  of the death of Ken Rees. Ken had been suffering for some time with cancer and sadly has passed away. 

He leaves his wife Lynne, daughter Sam, son Christian and 3 grandchildren.

There are no further details at this time.

 

 

Members do not need to be reminded that at the moment all future plans anywhere are on hold.  For most of us in the UK it was most interesting to read , in the latest Newsletter, of the permissions needed by people living in France from Barbara Grey.

 

Talking Pictures Channel

 

Club members may have come across this channel for movies of the past. Many may not know however that our President Alf Wilson is on it. Or rather his name is on it in the form of a screen credit. Just recently they aired the film Angels one five. Alf was  the dubbing editor responsible for all the sound work. He told me that on the dialogue scenes between actors he would like to have enhanced the background effects somewhat to add to the picture. However he was prevented from doing so by the technical producers were were ex RAF types  (Angels One Five is a film about the RAF in WW2 ) who maintained it had to be kept “real” .   Then he went on saying that one night later on Talking Pictures there was a film called The Upturned Glass being screened. This picture Alf started on but was transferred  to do another movie ,George in Civvy Street. This starred the legendary George Formby and was to be his last feature film.  The picture is Alf at his audio mixing console in deepest Dorset.
