Hello my friend. I only knew Teresa from her being in the old Pack Horse Inn back in the early 60's. I dont ever recall seeing her in The Clock Tower Cafe or any other place, She just used to hang out with a bunch of us when we would walk down to that pub from The Clock to play three card brag. I was about 17 at that time, and I think Teresa was a couple of years younger. I dont know why she spent so much time in that place, but it could be she was related to, or friends with the landlord: George & Lorna Kirby. She was too young to be drinking, and to my certain knowledge never did. She was a lovely girl and I can picture her now; in fact I'll never forget her. It came as a shock to us all to learn she got killed in a motor cycle incident, I believe while riding pillion (no helmet law in those days). Thats all I know; I dont know where the accident was, or who's bike she was riding on, but I believe he survived. My condolences, even after all this time, she would have been about 68 now.Hi there
could anyone please give me more info about teresa rozier's accident id be so grateful - she would have been my auntie
Thank you so much for your memories of Teresa. It means alot to know a little bit more about her. Ive been told a few times that i'm alot like her in both looks and personality. She sounds lovely i wish id had the pleasure of meeting her. I know she was engaged to Tommy Worthington (my godfather) who was on the bike with her. He walked away without a scratch but understandably blamed himself. I personally havent heard of George or Lorna but i know my grandparents (Cath & Alf Rozier) were very close friends with the Worthington family so maybe there's a connection there? My dad is 7 years younger than Teresa and now suffers with severe ill health following a car crash. His memory is failing so i'm trying to compile notes which will hopefully act as trigger points for him to remember. I am ever so grateful for your kind words. Thank you so much!
anyone old enough to remember the Confederates scooter club , that ran in Exeter back in the 1960s?
Pete,Did anyone ride a BSA Bantam or a BSA Bantam Major? Surely somebody must have ridden one briefly, even if you only put two stroke petrol in em'? Also who went on to be a 'bubble car' owner? They were like a Reliant Robin, where you could drive one of them on a motorcycle licence. The favorite at the time seemed to be the Issetta; where you opened the entire front of the vehicle (steering wheel an' all) to get in the thing. The other was the Messerschmidt, where you climbed in the top, got behind the wheel, and closed the 'bubble' which of course was perspex!
Incidentally in those days I passed my test a month after my 16th birthday by riding round the Clock Tower block about 10 times!Pete,
I've just seen this thread for the first time. I had both a Bantam and Bantam major. Then it was on to a Tiger Cub and finally a BSA Shooting Star. Good times originally until I learned that my best mate (Kenny Burnell from Whimple) was killed in an accident on Rockbeare straight. I never rode again after that as it shook me up so much.
