We deeply regret that we once again have to report the passing of two stalwart members of the "old" C&BG Boy's Club, namely Maurice Coburn & Ralph Levene. With regard to Maurice, I received the following letter yesterday (5/8/12) which is self explanatory: "Dear Ron, My father in law Maurice Coburn was a member of the Cambridge and Bethnal Green Boys Club until the war. The club was one of the formative experiences of his life. His older brother Harry Coburn and his younger brother Cyril, both of whom are no longer with us were also members. Unfortunately and with great sadness I write to inform you that Maurice passed away aged 94 earlier today, having been unwell for some time He greatly enjoyed the annual reunions and would look forward to them each year, insisting that I and or my brother in law came with him, until ill health in the last few years meant he was unable to attend. Please pass this information to the other members of the club from his era. With best wishes, Simon Gordon"
