Thread Name: Obit: Archie Tawney (brother of Cyril) 27 May '14
Subject: Archie Tawney
Cyril Tawney's older brother Archie's name will not be as familiar to as many people as Cyril's. However in the Manchester area Archie (or Ash) is well known. Also to Lancaster Maritime Festival goers and the the many artists who went through the clubs he used to run.

Last week in the XKeys in Uppermill the news came through that whilst Archie has not been around in the local clubs for some time he is still with us and now living in a home in Audenshaw and visitied regularly by Dennis Hayworth. No doubt still singing Cyrils songs in his own distinct way.

Lovely man.No man wearing a duffle coat downed a rum with such panache, but after being at Dunkirk at the start of WW11 and at the end with a few arctic voyages to Russia between, he was entitled to.
