Bill Fleming, a former employee of D. C. Thomson & Co Ltd, who had a long association with Scouting in Dundee, has died in Ninewells Hospital. Mr Fleming (74), who retired nine years ago after 44 years' service with D. C. Thomson, had cancer.

He briefly worked as an apprentice valuation surveyor with Lickley Proctor & Williamson, and a costing clerk with NCR, before two years' national service. In 1957 he joined D. C. Thomson, and was latterly a senior news sub-editor with the Evening Telegraph.
Outside of work it was Scouting that claimed much of his attention. He joined the 7th Cub Pack as an eight-year-old, then joined the Scouts and became a Scouter in 1954. He was the first person in Dundee to receive the Chief Scout's Long Service Decoration in recognition of over 40 years' service to the movement, and was awarded the Bar to the Silver Acorn.

He also had a long association with the Dundee Scout Gang Show.

He received the 35-year bar of the National Operatic and Dramatic Association.

A member of Stobswell Church, he helped form the Stobbie Ramblers.
