Dave Diaper – living the dream

1 Comment

I’ve just heard from Mick that Dave has died at the age of 72. He was one of Gosport’s (real) Brothers Scarlett who had lots of success locally in the 1960s and I know he and the brothers enjoyed all the Pompey Pop/Guildhall PME initiatives. Our sympathy to all the families of the ‘boys’ and thanks for bringing fun & music to people’s lives

  1. Is that Gerry Freeman from Portsmouth News making the presentation at The Savoy? Anybody know?
