Ralph Paul Goard

30th July 1958 – 14th September 2010

It was with great sadness members of the Band gathered on the 24th September 2010 to provide a Guard of Honour for Ralph. Despite the rain the Band stood stock still waiting for the hearse to arrive. The Salute was given by the Officers of The Band as the hearse passed.

After the service band members past and present took the opportunity to remember Ralph for what he had been. A great friend, a great Father, always up for a laugh and a dedicated member of the Redhill Corps of Drums. Who is going to build the bonfire at Camp? Who is going to risk life and limb climbing up a ladder which is clearly too short to replace light bulbs?

Sadly another founder member lost to the great Band in the sky.
