Death of (Tony) A M Jarrey RB 3GJ 3RGJ - BM Gloucestershire Regiment-Funeral Arrangements Added
Permalink Closed

I regret to inform you of the death of Tony Jarrey on Saturday.


Tony joined the Band of The Rifle Brigade either in the very late 50s or the early 60s.  I believe that he may have joined as a boy soldier.  He served with them until 1971 when he was posted to The Royal Military School of Music as a Student Bandmaster.  He successfully completed his Bandmasters course in 1973 and in January 1974 was appointed as Bandmaster of the Gloucestershire Regiment.  After his retirement from the Army he lived in Spain and latterly in Mielan in France where he passed away on Saturday. 


I was informed of his death yesterday by a mutual friend.
