Terry, Brian Crabtree is still extremely well and living out his retirement with Max on the farm in Halifax.  Johnny Kidd visits both Brian and Max a couple of times a year to talk about the old times and always takes some photos which he lets us have to show on the site.

I also enjoyed working with Max and Brian, I was one of the people who took the ring ar Lund Scotland and put it up and took it down each night. Met some wonderful people during those times. 

Left Scotland in 1973. And settled in New Zealand. Hope to attend reunion next year.   Regards to all,
