If you let me have your E Mail address I can send you a couple of photos I have of Jack and Bemil.Apart from my parents my first teacher was Bemil and later Jack. It was just after she won the Festival of Britain Beauty Queen Contest. They did create a record when at the " Star " ( that was one of the big ones )which was held each year. They won the Amature Title and exactly one year later made the final in the Professional. Quite a feat. They were very popular. If they were demonstrating at the Hammersmith Palais on strict tempo night you could be sure of a full house. He did take to Japan a movie of the " Star " ( no videos in those days ). Which on it he was in the Professional Final. Bemil had a sister who at that time was a singer with a band in Germany. Best wishes.
