featuring Bob Shipway, Colin Pierce, Andy Knight, Jim Beadle and Dave Shaw. The graffiti photo was taken in Alfred Street, St Leonards. Is that Daisy on the wall?

Yvonne Cleland… Yes looks like Daisy graffiti!
Bob Shipway… Happy (and great fun) days!!!
Robin Fahie asks… A friend of mine dropped in conversation he was the lead singer in a local 60’s group that went under the name GALLEONS and SHADES OF BLUE. Does the group mean anything to you?
Richard Moore… Malcolm Wren played keyboard for a while, but not sure of the others.

Pete Millington… Grundy as Bob Posner joined. Probably one of the most popular groups in Hastings for over 40 years and still going. L-R Bob Posner Bass Guitar/Vocals, Nigel Davies Guitar/Keyboard/Vocals RIP , Clive Davies Guitar/Vocals, Kirk Ronchetti Drums.
Bob Posner… 1984 I had the pub from 1979 to the end of 84 then I took it on again for another Five years from 1987. (Glutton for punishment) then I had the Old King John for a number of years.. Pub pic, left to right… Me, Nigel Davies, Clive Davies, Kirk Ronchetti. As a matter of interest and memories as you can tell from the pumps in the pic. (The hand pumps were in the top bar) it was still a Whitbreads pub (before the mergers and monopolies commission).
