Mick Mepham….Excellent!!! Paul was with me in Mars in ’86 and I think I played with Mark too but can’t remember when exactly, it might have been more like ’87 ish. I don’t believe I ever had the pleasure of playing with Chris….

Gary Kinch…..Top Bloke is Chris, haven’t seen him for a while

Chris Sambrook…The band were influenced by Rush around time of Moving Picture or beyond. Why i was wearing a Fireman’s helmet and blowing a “Duck call” is beyond me.

Mick Mepham…It’s a good look though Chris …….

Stevie Simpson… Saw Chris for the first time in 30 something years last night over at The Carlisle in Hastings, hardly changed

Terry Hardwick… Those H H speakers they weighed a ton

Val Orringe… Well, well, well. Searched to find out how the very talented Paul T was doing and found this. A quantum reality time ago. Still have the tinnitus as proof! My memory is of the sell out at the Tivoli, Eastbourne.

Martin Richter… Dr marvin suggs

Who remembers Malcolm Mitchells in High Street Old Town Hastings?

Photo Bob Mitchell. shared from Hastings and Area Past and Present Facebook page

HAPP… It’s 25th March, 1988 and the well-known army surplus store Malcolm Mitchell’s in the High Street, closed. It had opened in 1946. The photo was supplied by Bob Mitchell who wrote “Anyone remember my Uncle Malcom’s shop in the High street where my dad Tom worked with him and the other brothers? Great days.”

Pete Fisher… Bought my fire service greatcoat there, and my first electric guitar, a no-name solid body for ten quid…

Lynda Whatley… I remember it well – it was just along from Judges who baked AMAZING Bread !

Lucy Pappas… Great shop!

Tony Court-holmes…  if born in the old town all of us. Piles of boots left one side and right the other and if you wanted laces you had copper wire we never had it so good

Jacqueline Marsh… I loved going in there and having a nose round, so many amazing things and so cheap too. It always had a dry musty smell, think is was from the old uniforms and rubber on things. Wonderful shop. Judges were famous for their Nelson cake, made up of stale cakes and loads of sugary stuff, they were always such a treat

Russell Field…  Loved that shop !

Dizz Corinne Ryder… I remember the “old” musty smell when I passed the shop and all the ex-army boots and clothes piled up. think they found a secret room off the main shop area when it was sold.

Alan Esdaile… I can still smell it by just looking at the photo!

John Busbridge… I bought a flying hat in there 50 odd years ago and I still wear it in my vintage car. Also bought a Military Flute and Fife which I’ve still got, I was learning Nights in White Satin!

Jacquie Hinves… The Moody Blues. I can’t forget that song! I was sweet on a guy called Lesley Sharpe. His dad owned the Volvo dealership/ garage in Silverhill. Oh memories! Loved it. So many smells and memories.

John Wilde… I clothed my funky self from Malcolms.

Angela Frances Gardner… I bought my boiler suit from there

Jonathan Mendenhall… remember it well

Pete Brazier… I Remember with great joy all the things I got from there, and there were a few things I remember missing out on cos I couldn’t get back in time before they sold out ”Great Times!”

Jeanette Jones… I had a very warm all wool nurses cape from there
