|In late Spring of this year an evening's entertainment was arranged at the Croydon Bowls Club by members of the South London (Croydon) Branch of the Royal Signals Association who meet there regularly on a monthly basis.
The event was organised by Derek Willson MØBGX (RSARS 3439) with Ken MackIntosh and Doug Anderson, Chair of the RSA Branch, with the Bowls Club. (Ken is MØCOR, RSARS Member 3702 and is well-known for his Big Band - his wonderful story and achievement were related by Derek in an article in "MERCURY" No.124 of November 1999.

The evening of Dance and Big Band hits was outstandingly successful and much enjoyed by more than 100 RSA and Bowls Club members and guests.
