Jim Breeds… This is from the rear cover of their 1975 album “The Best of Folk. Sleeve notes by Shirley Collins, another Hastings musician. The Mariners were (With where they are in the photo for the ones I can be sure I have matched names to faces properly): John Towner (2nd from left), George Copeland (3rd from left), Ted Bishop, Michael Verrall, Geoff Marchant, and Garry Blakely (2nd from right).
Garry lived next door to a good friend of mine (Brian Chainey, who had something to do with Mad Jack’s Morris at some point) and George and I were in the scouts together.
