Hi Amanda,


Welcome to you, some nine years after my photo with the bus I can at least come up with a photo that doesn't have a bus blocking the view. though I'm afraid it's not a very good photo.

Here's a cutting with Mr Kershaw pictured. He was organising flights to New York to see a Randy Turpin fight.
