The group used a green Bedford van (1963/1964) to ferry the group and all it's equipment. The van belonged to my husband Kenneth Ursell. I remember the gigs well. We have lived in Perth Australia for the past 34 years, Ken is turning 70 this year and if anyone has any photos of the band I would love for you to send them for a DVD our daughter is putting together.
