Chaps,

JRT,

Thanks for those encouraging words old sport! The drummer is one of the pre-Beatles gang who we knew in those far-off days. In fact, I designed the 'Sabres' logo on his bass drum and painted it to look like one of the famous 'Skyblazers' F100 kites. Unfortunately, that group did not ascend to the lofty heights of fame enjoyed by that superb aerobatic team. I saw the 'Skyblazers' display at Wethersfield, Essex in June 1960 and was highly impressed by them. They seemed more aggressive than our RAF chaps...on that day at any rate.
