Roy Walton RIP

Roy Walton passed away peacefully on Tuesday, 4th February, 2020.


Roy was a founder member of the Bonnie Scotland Tent. He attended our first tent meeting in May 1976 and came to most of our meetings in Glasgow throughout the early years. Indeed, he often shared projecting duties, cheerfully dipping into his own personal private collection of Laurel and Hardy films on super 8mm.

He wrote for the very first issue of Bowler Dessert in 1976 and for many subsequent issues.

I last met Roy when he popped in to one of our Call of the Cuckoos Tent’s screenings of Laurel and Hardy films at the Panopticon in Glasgow. He had changed none!

Roy was a delightful person to know and the Sons of the Desert mourn his loss.
