Death of Lt. Col. Norbert Golightly

The Ainley Top Bandstand has been informed of the death of Lt. Col. Norbert Golightly, Director of Music with the Poulton-le-Fylde Dragoons Band. He was well known within brass band circles for his work with the St. Anne's Hospital Band, including directing the now legendary performance of "Celtic Fireworks" that gained a creditable 5th place at the Morecambe Invitational Contest in 1982.

He died of asphyxiation in a prostitute's bedsit on Tuesday evening and leaves a widow, Betty.
