Arthur was aged 94 when he  died at Stepping Hill Hospital, Stockport. Arthur joined the Manchester Regiment in 1936 as a drummer and served with them until he was captured by the Japanese in 1942. Subsequently he spent 3 1/2 years as a POW.

Arthur's funeral will be held at 1045 hrs on Thursday 19th March 2015 at Stockport Crematorium, Buxton Road, Heaviley, Stockport, SK2 6LS. The family would welcome Arthur's old friends and comrades at the Service.

When I heard he'd died I hoped someone had played for him as well.

Arthur worked so hard to tell everyone what happened in Singapore and afterwards, he wrote some stunning works telling the stories of the courage and deeds that were lost to most of us
