Humphrey Lyttleton

Has died.

Not sure if this story will make it into the obituaries. Vignettes of VE Day:

"of the Old Etonian trumpeter (and young Guards officer) Humphrey Lyttleton playing "Roll Out The Barrel" as he lurched on a handcart from Buckingham Palace to Trafalgar Square and back followed by a long swaying line of revellers going the conga;"

I know he did much more than that but still, a nice image of the man.
