Captain Maurice Frank Henry Urquhart Necom Seddon (Royal Signals, retired).

Monday March 24th 12 noon Slough crematorium. On the eve of Maurice’s final “adieu” as he was fond of saying, the dulcet tones continue to drift out on the airwaves. This episode includes persistence with directory enquiries, a Baby Belling salesman and a lengthy discussion with Erika in German touching on Art investment at the turn of the century (19th). Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits, and Are melted into air, into thin air: And like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp’d tow’rs, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on; and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. (Prospero, The Tempest Act 4, scene 1).
