Hugh Creighton has responded to Ron George's query about Earl Soham Falcon regulars in the 1980s. As Ron anticipated most have passed away: Neville probably 12 years ago, Bob Airey (Percy Bob) 18 years ago maybe, Morris and Daphne (Daffy Duck) have also passed away and Paul was last heard of in Kesgrave.
