The problem I have with all this is the lack of foresight. Such a surprise for a so called entrepreneur.

If you're going to go to press with something like this, then be ready for the inevitable world-wide interest it will create.

Harold Mascall ( AKA, Guy) gave Invaders
It's name, and still resides in Brooklyn
at Present,at that time the ban was still
Oval Boys with Louis Peyson ( AKA)
PaPa Singley,a City Council Worker and
Resident of Bournes Road St James
Was the Oval Boys sponsor,providing
Uniforms,drums for tuning and toys
at Christmas for resident Kids ! Facts!!

Tellison A Forde, this is how we get the correct history, by people who know speaking out.

Godfather, I can give you the history of the Breadfruit trees in Invaders yard and the adjacent yard from which I was Born which was devided only by a Galvanize fence,with SECRET holes or escape Routes !
