It is with great sadness, that I inform you of the peaceful passing of Paul Draper this morning at 3.30am at the young age of 63 after a series of illnesses.
Paul had been a member of the 1st Tennessee since 2014 and attended most of the events.
He was such a kind and generous man and was willing and able to learn new skills and experiences whilst with us and the Drum Corps.
Paul will be missed by many in ACWS as he was such a likeable character.
Not long before he passed, Paul wished to pass on his thanks to everyone in ACWS who had made his time with us so enjoyable, and for all the cards, flowers and best wishes received during his recent illnesses.
Our thoughts are with his wife Margaret, Essie and family at this very sad time.
First Sergeant, Co.E, First Tennessee (Maney's) Volunteer Infantry
