Band Sergeant Sid Robinson died suddenly on 27 July 1976.

He spent all of his service, except for part of the War Years, in the 7th Queen’s Own Hussars Band.

He joined the Regiment in 1929 and left on 3 June 1953, after staying an extra day to march with the Band as it led the Royal Armoured Corps detachment on the “Queen’s Coronation Day Parade” through the streets of London.

Sid was a most popular member of the Regiment, a great musician, and a fine allis affectionately, by those who served with him and will be sadly missed by his friends at the annual “Old Comrades” reunion.

His Cremation at Ipswich was attended by many Old Comrades and Wives.

Our deepest sympathy goes to his wife Wyn and family, and his brother Trumpet Major Arthur Robinson.
