Bob Shipway… As it’s Tony’s birthday, what better time than to share our ‘walkerprints’ poster of the relatively short-lived band called Tarquin (after Tony’s horse what else!) The photo was taken early-ish on a Sunday morning with all of us the worse for wear from our gig the night before. After the photos were taken we adjourned to the pub where Andy and I met two young women one of which, in due course, became my first wife! Good days – good times!
Graham Burfield… I remember that picture from when I worked in his shop think it was on the wall somewhere
Mike Waghorne… Is that the Bob Shipway that I was at Hastings College with in the late 60’s/ early 70’s doing electrical engineering course ?
Bob Shipway… Hi Mike, I suppose like a lot of us inwardly I feel no different from the time we were at college but outwardly I’ve been raced and rallied a tad too much! Life is good up in sunny Scotland Hope you’re keeping well.
Alan Esdaile… Tony Bird, Andy Knight, Tarquin, Paul Dove and Bob Shipway.
Pete Prescott… Great photo. I like Andy’s tash. Very Robert Redford !
Terry Pack… Tempted to ask ‘Why the long face?’ but I’ll resist the urge. I think I once ‘rode’ Tarquin as far as The United Friends one Sunday morning. I was terrified. My one and only time on horseback.
