Founder member Brian Jones had a younger brother who regularly purchased the comic “”Swift”. This was a companion comic to, and aimed at a slightly younger readership than, the “Eagle”. One day in 1962 Brian flicked through an old copy of this comic and noticed page eight. The rest, as they say, is history…as is the late Mr Jones.
