  1. There was 10 free beer tokens in the book. I believe they had the standard bearers in attendance. Eric Jones, Danny Ross & Ian Forester were dressed as the Andrews sister’s.

  2. ON MONDAY 8TH MAY 1995 THE MALLEABLE CLUB OFFICIALS, COMMITTEE & MEMBERS PUT ON A V.E DAY 50TH CELEBRATION SHOW. THE SHOW WAS ORGANISED BY GEORGE LOCKWOOD AND THE CONCERT ROOM WAS FULL BY 8PM. WE WERE ALL DRESSED IN VARIOUS UNIFORMS AND HAD COMEDY SKETCHES AND MIMED TO MUSIC BY THE LIKES OF VERA LYNN AND OTHER ARTISTS OF THAT ERA. I”M NOT SURE HOW MANY TOKENS WERE IN THE RATION BOOKS THAT WE WERE ISSUED WITH, BUT I”M SURE SOMEONE WILL REMEMBER AND POST A COMMENT. ONE THING I DO REMEMBER IS THAT THE EVENING WAS A GREAT SUCCESS, AS WAS EVERY OTHER CONCERT PARTY THAT WAS ORGANISED BY GEORGE LOCKWOOD, AND IT WAS GREAT PLEASURE TO FEATURE IN A NUMBER OF THEM MYSELF.

  3. This book contained “Beer Tokens”. I can”t remember if it was free beer or cheap beer but it was their way of giving the members a way of celebrating. Looking on the inside of the book there are 2 pages of stubs so there could have been about 30 tokens. No tokens left so there”s no information on these. Can anyone out there add to this information?
