GUEST,Bob Check this out, she is one of ours (28) RE: Check this out, she is one of ours 16 Apr 08


Her father, Roger Nutbeem, Captain Nutbeem as he was then known, used to be a popular singer in folk clubs around the Godalming/ Farnham/ Fleet area in the 70s. He was in the Army medical side. Maggie Holland dedicates the song Coshieville to him on her recent Bones CD as they were both learning it at the time he went off to the Falklands. Not long after the war, Dick Gaughan made a flippant remark in one of the local clubs about how only the footsoldiers suffer and die in wars, never the officers, and wondered why there was a chilled silence. I believe somebody took him aside and told him in the interval because he had the typically good grace to apologise at the beginning of the second half.

It's lovely to see Roger's daughter being so courageous.
