Mick Knights…..The winch huts don’t seem to have aged that much!

Pat Harrison Burgess… Do you have any more pictures of The Talismen? Would love his daughters to see more pictures.

Alan Esdaile… Hi Pat, I expect you have seen the other ones on the site but will check with Pete Millington to see if he has any others. Anyone else, got any photos?

Eugene Hughes… Wow. My first job in 1972 was with Henry (Henners) on the GPO.

Roger Saunders… Great to see the photo. I was the original drummer with the group for a couple of years. Happy Days. Good gigs at the Market Hall in George Street, and always great laughs with Henry.

Andre Martin… Life was always a laugh with ‘enry.

The TALISMEN (Chris Sayer, Henry Harvey, Peter Head and Peter (Jonah) Jones playing at the 1987 Pier Big Beat Reunion.

Jenny Tyler… I was there.

Colin Fox… Does anyone know if Peter Head is still about? He must have retired from Hastings police some years ago.

Peter Millington… Hi Colin, Pete is still about but has now retired from “Sleight of Hand” and I believe he’s doing some gigs with his Sister. He did a “cracking” musical tribute to Paul Burton along with several other groups, acts at his “wake” on 3rd February last, at the East Hastings Angling Club. He’s certainly not wearing Blue any more!

Colin Fox… Hi Peter. Glad to hear he is still playing.
