    He was indeed a pilot from 617 Squadron, but only began to fly missions with them over a year after the Dambusters raid.

    The 100 Club

    Huey Long of The Ink Spots lived to 105. However it seems he was only in the group for a few months in 1945, and left the group when founding member Charlie Fuqua returned from a stint in the US Army.

    The 100 Club

    Italian composer Ceclia Seghezzi lived to 111. She seems to be somewhat obscure, though, as I've not manged to find recordings of any of her works.

    Derby Dead Pool 2021

    I did have him on my shortlist, but took him off in favour of someone else who is clearly still alive.

    34. Linda Nolan

    Linda and Anne Nolan were both interviewed on Channel 4's "Steph's Packed Lunch" today - they both appeared to look fine.

    Derby Dead Pool 2021

    Right at the beginning of the year I noticed that there were precisely 20 people that matched a certain criteria, and they would make an excellent theme team, as all are certainly able to produce a QO, and they're all getting on in years. Plus there's a few members who are likely to be unique picks should I chose them. If only I'd though of them a day or two before! Anyway one member of that group passed on recently, so I'm ruing that chance even more now. I'm not saying what the criteria is, as I hope to submit the list next time, assuming that more people make the list before the end of the year.

    Dementia afflicted footballers

    It could just be for a feature of one of the TV shows he works for - he's done health related things when appearing on Channel 4's "Steph's Packed Lunch".

    Stanley Baxter was in ENSA during the war, I believe.

    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    Having since seen the broadcast, it looked like footage from an editing session had somehow been switched onto the live feed.

    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    Apparently within the past hour BBC Scotland's television coverage of Nicola Sturgeon's testimony was suddenly cut to archive footage of Prince Philip. Has he pegged it?
