John also told us, "In the summer of 1966, I, and a schoolfriend, Kelvin Hide, were Redcoats at Cliftonville. We were both waiting to take up our places at university. I was lifeguard at the indoor pool at the Queen's Hotel. Kelvin and I played guitar and sang, and opened the Redcoat show each week, as well as all of the other duties required of us. We lived in one of the smaller hotels set aside for staff.

Barry and Paul Harman later gained celebrity as the hapless 'Chuckle Brothers' of children's TV fame. Patricia and Derek Willans were harmony vocalists; Tony Weston was a tenor and the 'J Twins' were a song and dance duo. Several of the girls in the middle row were dancers, but their names I cannot remember."
