Today was the first look i have taken of it and wow, i didnt realise just how interesting and well illustrated it is. it was really was enjoyable. So my message to me and others, is do take a browse around the site just to see whats on offer, we have so many treasures its hard to appreciate them all, sometimes we dont see what is in front of our eyes, hidden in full view. Thanks for those who contrirbuted , most enjoyable. David Gentle

Just been flicking through the threads and have a couple of bit of info. Duranton became a pro wrestler and regularly wrestled with my close mate, wrestler Bob Kirkwood, both were what we call good "workers" although Duranton put a lot of weight on. Indian Clubs, David Webster obe, the famous scottish writer, historian etc,was a champion at swinging Indian clubs and gets mentioned often in old H&S mags, David is 90 years old this year and still pounds out articles, although his greatest love is the Highland Games, with Kazmaier helping him out. Dave Prowse, sadly is not so good and has finished his roving and talks on Star Wars etc, still physically healthy, despite his life long fight with his joint problems, he is not so good in his memory stakes , so finally no longer available for lectures.Please dont pester him for star wars memorabilia. His first love was and is bodybuilding, and the only reason he didnt class higher, and boy, is he high, towering over my 6ft 1in. is or was due to personal politics, ie the people running the shows in those days simply didnt like him as he would not play the rules, so despite a good physique, lost out due to (Honest this is what they said) " Ugly feet"... thats the way it was...David Gentle

Sorry, I don't. It was posted on Bill Pearl's Facebook page, but there wasn't any mention of where it was taken.
