It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of John Hardstaff early Monday 15th October 2012. John was a very active member of the Tasmanian banding fraternity and spent many years as a member of the Latrobe Federal Band. He was an valued member of the band from 1975-1988, a member of the UK Tour in 1979, awarded Life Membership in 1980, occasional Band Sergeant and a very capable carpenter who did a lot of work on the bandrooms in the early 80’s. John was awarded the TBL Badge of Honour in 1986 for his service to Tasmanian banding. His passing will be sadly missed by many.
