Robert Paton… Hollington Police Box corner of Battle Road and Perth Road 1960’s

Paul Phillips… Real coppers then that walked their beat , made you feel safe on the streets.

Stuart Moir… They would be useless in todays drug filled streets, kids of all ages tooled up and don’t give a shit who they hurt .

Sam Rosewell… I remember this still being there in the 70s – my grandparents lived across the road

Daryl Perkins… Remember this

Patric Lewis… Opposite the Tiv.

Ian Johnson… Know it well

Mark Randall…PC 31 “Excuse me Super, would you mind blowing into this please?” Super “Of course, but you realise it’s a balloon?” PC 31 “Yes, of course I do, its Sarge’s leaving Day party and we’ve not quite finished putting the canteen decorations up”

Tracy Birrell… I remember it,being of a certain age. Also the box at the bottom of London Road, on the seafront.

Robert Searle… Great photos

Tim Moose Bruce… Drool at those Vox amps…

Chris Barrett… They are fantastic

Pete Millington… All cost around £150.00 each back in early 1964 – broke the bank for a couple of years I can tell you! I expect someone can do the maths as to what £150.00 would be now – gulp!

Gerry Fortsch… John Conroy sang with my old band The Earl Dee Sound for while after this, what a nice guy and a good singer and mover. John sang with myself Graham Bradley and Paul Ritchie prior to his move to Canada, I think that Graham stayed in contact with him.

Pete Millington… He lives in a town called Midland which is on the lake north of Toronto. There’s a video of him singing some blues in a studio in 1974. I’m sure that it’ll pop up if you search John Conroy Toronto, Red House in studio.

Val Shoesmith… Remember these well. Church hall dances is Wishing Tree Road.
