I met Tommy while get­ting my hair cut

Black Country Bugle - - YOUR LETTERS - Ray Stokes, Kin­ver

READ­ING your ar­ti­cle in the De­cem­ber 26 edi­tion, num­ber 1374 about Eve Boswell and Tommy Cooper re­minded me of some­thing that hap­pened at that time.

I was at a com­pany din­ner/dance at the Sta­tion Ho­tel op­po­site the Hip­po­drome and I bumped into Eve Boswell in the ho­tel foyer. She was very vi­va­cious and seemed quite pe­tite. Next day I was hav­ing a ‘short back and sides’ in Bax­ter’s Gen­tle­men’s Hair­dressers in Tower Street, Dud­ley, when in walked Tommy Cooper. He was in­ter­ested in elec­tric shavers, had a shave, then left with­out mak­ing a pur­chase.

He was a big man and a nat­u­rally funny man. Happy mem­o­ries.

Tommy Cooper contemplates the pur­chase of an elec­tric shaver, but de­cides against it
