The PCS Nitrogen Silver Stars family is indebted to our founder Edgar 'Junior' Pouchet for the legacy that he has left for us.  Gifted musician, talented steelband man, fine friend.  We are happy to have had the opportunity to pay tribute to him at our 60th anniversary celebrations in 2008.  He will be with us forever.  May his soul rest in peace.
