LETTERS: That’s me and my brother!

Arts and Entertainment This crowd is waiting for the latest act in a preliminary round of the Great Beat Competition at the Garibaldi Ballroom Great Yarmouth. Used in the Eastern Daily Press "Down Memory Lane" 25 June, 2004 Dated -- May 14, 1965 Photograph -- c9984

I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the supplements which have appeared over the last few months in the Mercury.

However, a photo which caught my eye this week was the one of the Great Beat competition at the Garibaldi on page three. The boy second left at the bottom with his arms folded looked like my brother Richard. Then I noticed the boy next to him looking down is me, and the fair-haired boy with the check jacket is Tom Read, who played bass guitar in our group (as we called them then).

The problem is I can’t recall us ever going to Yarmouth although we did follow the competition in Norwich, where we all lived. Unfortunately my brother’s memory is probably worse than mine although I will send him the photo anyway.

Please continue with the supplements!
