"..I remember the whole camp going to see the late
comedian Tommy Cooper at the old Pier, He did this sketch where he walked
into the mike stand and said sorry mike. We thought this was
hilarious as it referred to Mike Middleton!..."

Just to let you know, I'm the person in the long red hair in the photo.
I'm a cousin of Tommy and Wullie Robertson. I also went the year before to
Whitley Bay. I left Glasgow in 1974, joined the RAF for 22 years, then
just settled down in England with my family. your doing a great job
with the site, brings back loads of memories. All the best for the
future. (Row 3, No.1)
