At the end of 2015 we heard from Terry again. He wrote: “I just came across a few old photos from the 1960s which you may or may not be interested in using.”
Above: Radio Caroline boss Ronan O'Rahilly. Terry describes the photo as being “circa 1966” but, as correspondent Ian Anderson has pointed out,
Ronan is wearing the same clothes as in the photo on this page and, with both Caroline ships in the background, it was probably taken in the Houthaven, Amsterdam, in 1968.
Below: Terry describes this as “a truck load of Caroline Cash Casino mail”. The writing on the lorry driver's door says ‘The Ottery Waste Paper Co.’ so the vehicle is probably disposing of Cash
Casino entries, rather than delivering them. There is one of Terry's photos showing a Cash Casino postal delivery here.
Terry has also suggested two additional items to add to the Radio Caroline timeline for August 1967:
|Eight Radio Caroline personnel attend a black-tie dinner hosted by Terry Bate at the Savoy Hotel where, at midnight, they usher in the Marine Etc. Broadcasting Offences Act with
a champagne toast. By chance George Brown, a Minister in the Harold Wilson Government, is dining at a nearby table so Terry invites him to join in the toast to his Government which is trying to put Caroline out of business. He is
|8.00am: the same eight Radio Caroline personnel board a private aircraft piloted by Terry Bate and fly to Amsterdam to man the newly opened Radio Caroline International
office at Singel 160, fronting one of the main canals in Amsterdam. By 11.00am the word is out and the office has become a sight-seeing stop for the tourist boats.
