Anyone recognise this lady from the Thomas Cook Advert in the 1980’s? asks Colin Fox

Colin Fox… I wonder how many people recognise this young lady in the Thomas Cook advert of the 1980s. She’s is/was from Hastings and went out with a guitrist who lived there.

Stuart Moir… from the Harry R and the jump jets days, “Kathy”

Pete Prescott…She’s an amazing dancer. All the girls were lovely. You guys did a fantastic job on backing vocals. I was bloody useless at those then (not that I’m much better at it now!) Wouldn’t it be great to go back and do it all again

Colin Fox… Pete, I always had great respect for your vocals Pete, every note spot on, and as Tom Jones would say “I like the tone of your voice”. I believed you had a voice that would have gone down well in the US.

Stuart Moir… Pete, It would be so nice to see all the people who are still around and able to perform, obviously all the lead vocals would down to you, Colin and Chris are still active on fb so they would still be good for BVs, I wonder how many of the girls are still dancing at their various homes with their grand children he he , I hold such lovely memories of our days with HarryR as I’m sure you do, I’m in touch with Pete Shaw regularly as we share a passion for Porsche but not so much Ray as he is the other side of the Thames border and I’m not sure if he’s a fan of Facebook but I’m sure he’s still making his guitars sing as they used to down South, I know Phil is still on the band scene but playing a brilliant lead guitar rather than the bass as he was in the band, anyway I’m glad your still active and performing well as per the Beach Concert blues brothers set, look forward to catching up face to face .

Steven Singleton… Kate Moss ?

Colin Fox… She’s also in this photo that I took at the Conservative club Bexhill in the 1980s, on the far left.

Stuart Moir… That photo was taken at the Bexhill club at one of the rehearsals. They were our dancers at the Harry R and the jump jets concert at the De la warr pavillion . We were only talking about the gig we all did together, Colin, Chris and me on backing vocals, Pete Shaw on drums Phil Gill on bass guitar Ray Fenwick on lead and I think Revie Stockdale played keys for that one, lead vocals were Dave Easton and Peter Prescott, a brilliant band that we could have sold anywhere .

Colin Fox… Private party, Herstmonceux Castle

Pete Prescott… Good Times

Chris Howard… The beautiful Kathy.

Lyn Humphrey… Kathy Collins went to Bexhill Downs Secondary School in the mid/late ’60s. She was also in an episode of ‘Doctor in the House’, in 1970, when (in the programme) she thought she’d become engaged to the show’s star, Barry Evans.

Paul Coleman… The girl in the pic i believe came from Bexhill but may have moved to Hastings. I saw her many times in Bexhill & I think her name was Cathy Collins. I could be wrong but I thought she went to school in Bexhill?

Stuart Moir… Kathy with a K was her name she was a Bexill girl initially married to a local accountant whos name escapes me .
