Radio Caroline's Dick Morecraft
died on November 1st 1999

Caroline broadcasters and office staff were saddened by the passing of Dick, who died from a heart attack. Mourners at his funeral included Keith Skues, Colin Berry, Ray Anderson and Paul Graham. Dick was Caroline's Office Maintenance Manager, the man who was given the unhappy task of closing down Caroline House in Chesterfield Gardens. He was the last person to leave in September '67, after the Marine Offences Bill became law and the offices moved to Holland.

Jon Myer writes: "I'm so sorry to hear the sad news. I only met Dick a couple of times, but he struck me as a genuinely lovely man who didn't have a bad word to say about anyone."
