Govan Citadel Band are deeply saddened by the recent death, or in SA terminology Promotion to Glory, of retired Bandsman and Deputy Bandmaster Malcolm Cassidy. Malcolm was a member of the Band for over 50 years, and played a number of instruments within the Band, but most notably G Trombone - complete with slide handle! Malcolm also arranged a number of items for the Band, and travelled extensively both within the UK and overseas.


Malcolm had suffered from ill health for some time, but maintained his dry wit and continued to support and encourage the Band. We think of his wife Anza, son Ken and daughter Carol. He will be greatly missed.
