Just saying hello

Hi, I’ve tried to email Mandy at the address below.

It was just one of those mornings when you casually google your own name and see what comes up....

Couldn’t not email to pay my respects to your dad. I also found out about his band The Hideaways.

My Dad (also called John!) never met his Grandfather - he was killed on Christmas Day - his boat torpedoed by a German submarine.

With very best wishes
John R Shell

50 years ago.........

You were born in Arkansas, but grew up in shadow of the Beatles. An accomplished bass guitar player, a member of the Hideaways, a band that played the famous Cavern club, Liverpool, many times. You didn't have to return to the States, but did so out of sense of duty. Three months into your tour, you were lost to friendly fire. You are remembered.
