I don't know whether this is going to work, but this is the documentary of Jed Jackson and Mike Armitage about pigeons in which a bit was taken at the worthing pigeon club with myself and Trev in. This would have been in the early 90's. Trev had the video and brought it down last weekend. I have had it put onto DVD. Then i had to record it using my ipad off my TV, so apologese for the quality. It then wouldn't download onto the forum as it was a too large file, so posted it on my business facebook which I have just started and done the link from there.
Hope it works and you enjoy it.

Well done Andy, good to see that again. Did anyone spot Andy and Myself ???
Many great and happy memories of those days when clubs were more than just places to basket our birds.
Some great characters in Worthing back then and some top fliers, sadly many of those faces are no longer with us including our Dad. Worthing now only has 9 members 5 of which (including me) were there then, at 52 I'm still the youngest.
How different those two lofts are yet both successful fliers with great control over their birds, not sure catching the bird on the lawn is strictly allowed though :lol: :lol:

This is the clock that was seen on the table at Worthing after the strike in that clip. I still have it and it’s still got the same thimble bag on it, I even used it in the first couple of races I had after restarting, before I got my ETS. Still runs within a few seconds. Cost me Β£110 second hand in 1985. My wages were Β£105 per week for a 60 hour week back then. So more than a weeks wages.

πŸ˜†πŸ˜† That was John Knowles πŸ˜†. I was doing the marking sat in the white shirt and Trev was the one in the white shirt putting the birds through. The other chap with the glasses, putting the birds through is Roy Oliver. He was secretary before I joined the club and still is now.

Yes Roy is 82 this year and still club Secretary, he still goes up his allotment every day and up until last year was helping Jed's wife Joan with her garden. Joan is now in her late 90s and had to go into a care home just before Christmas but she is still doing well and loves to get a report each week on the racing is going, she gives prize money each year to the winner of the three longest Old bird races.
