As promised, our book is already appearing free of charge and it will continue to be added to in 2022 as an ongoing and copyright partwork. Now that Paul Rusling and his band of con-conspiratorial thieves have been disposed of, we can push ahead, although we obviously wish that he had taken up our offer to apologise, instead of repeating his project of theft. But you will soon be able to read the ongoing review of Rusling's rubbish over on Mike Wilson's dedicated site. Click here to go there.
In the meantime, here is a 'gift', a clue from Merle Haggard, and it will take a smart anorak to figure out what the connection is with this song and what we are working on. (Don't ask Paul Rusling, he won't know.) ....
Happy New Year from Caroline Brooks and 'The Trio'!
The Blog contribution on our companion site that appeared yesterday, and was updated yesterday, has been updated - or we should claim - expanded - again today. It looks awfully like the outline of a book that is appearing before your very eyes! (Use the link button above. Access to read is granted to you free of charge. One caveat: it is copyrighted.)
We can now reveal an outline of part of the true story behind the 1964 creation of Radio Caroline, which you can read over on our companion Blog. Please use the link above.

.... or even:
After a long, long wait, we finally received Rusling's 'updated' 'Bible' and as expected it has made a bad situation even worse. Rusling has now amended his corrupt storytelling with a nod to the likes of 'Pinky', but omitted any genuine, authentic sourced references.
So we are now sending both the original and updated versions of Paul Alexander Rusling's 'The Radio Caroline Bible' to Mike Wilson at Radio Now and Then for his independent review.
If you want to read an annotated and unexpurgated account of what Paul Rusling has been selling to gullible supporters of the Malcolm Smith eponymous but unrelated radio station, then you should go to Radio Now and Then for details that will be upcoming.
On this site and on our companion Blog following the delay created by Paul Rusling, we will begin to reveal the actual and factual story about Caroline: the girl who never was by tailoring everything to our unique YesterCode.
But before we start to do that on this Blog which will serve as the 'feed' for our manuscript web page, we want to tell you how we got a 'last laugh' about Paul Rusling's ongoing thefts. As previously explained, for legal reasons, should we choose to really hammer Paul Rusling in courts of law, we have to mitigate future damages in view of his seemingly never-ending promise to publish his 'updated' 'Bible' with material stolen from us.
Therefore, once we knew what his intentions were, we had to halt giving away new information that he might continue to steal from us. Rusling tried to pretend that this information is 'free', but it is not. We have spent an incredible number of hours and amount of research money in trying to uncover the real story behind the creation of Radio Caroline, while unmasking the likes of Ronan O'Rahilly, Ian Cowper Ross and Oonagh Leigh.
We succeeded in finding the truth about all three of them.
But in all this we decided to have some fun and set a trap for Rusling to walk into. Actually, we set several, but here we will cite just one of them and perhaps allude to some others.
On page 56 of his original book, Rusling writes that "The Mi Amigo had on board not only her two previous transmitters as used for Radio Nord off Sweden ..... but a further two new units from the same manufacturer."
But on page 60 of his 'updated' edition, the line: " .... but a further two new units from the same manufacturer" is missing. Rusling gets himself into a pickle over this by resurrecting the bogus insertion of "Arthur Carrington" to help explain how the mv Caroline got its transmitters - which he still insists were delivered to Wijsmuller in Rotterdam.
In his original book he explains that the Mi Amigo docked at Sun Cay in the Bahamas where the two new transmitters were unloaded and transferred to a ship which took them to Rotterdam. Not so in his 'update' book. The reason being that we invented (with reason) a hypothetical explanation as to how the two new transmitters got on board the mv Fredericia, renamed Iseult and then Caroline. At least he has now acknowledged the name Iseult, but not the back story about O'Rahilly Senior, because Rusling does not appear to know that story which really gets in the way of his narrative to build up the image of Ronan O'Rahilly as an entrepreneur, who in reality became a sponging anarchist.
So when we saw just how much information Rusling had stolen, we made a big issue of our stolen hypothesis and indicated that we had discovered that it was untrue - which we have not. But Rusling thought that we had, so he removed it and left his readers with no explanation as to how Radio Caroline obtained its two transmitters from Dallas, Texas.
Rusling also invented a story about KILT's Bill Cook. He claims that Bill Cook gave Ronan O'Rahilly a lesson on how to set up an offshore station. The only lesson we know of that Ronan O'Rahilly was given in Houston, Texas, was how to pick a pair of cowboy boots. But O'Rahilly never admitted to going to Houston in June 1963, that information came from us, including the story about his cowboy boots.
Rusling never went to Houston to interview the people involved. In the 1970s, not only did we do just that, but one of our team was living in Houston and another was born in Dallas. Later in the 1980s, all three of our team were in Texas. One was at university writing about offshore radio and two others were working with Don Pierson, the creator of Radio London; Radio England, and Britain Radio.
But those are not the only mistakes that Rusling made.
Rusling claimed that Charles Edward Ross (the father of Ian Cowper Ross), was named 'Jimmy' in order to use the fake story spun by Ian Cowper Ross to Ray Clark. That story was invented by Ian Cowper Ross in a novel about a man named Jimmy Shaw. Then a year later on television, Ian Cowper Ross was very careful not to use the name of Jimmy Shaw, but to talk only of his 'Daddy', but the scenario he used was the same one that he used in his book.
Ian Cowper Ross then told Ray Clark enough for Ray Clark to start writing his own story about Radio Caroline in which 'Jimmy Shaw' had become 'Jimmy Ross' and then all manner of really stupid information was padded out on Wikipedia in support of this idea.
Trying to decipher the truth in Rusling's two versions (the original and updated), is impossible, and we will leave that chore to Mike Wilson. It will be for Mike to fathom how he wants to deal with it. But Ray Clark and Rusling have both turned Charles Edward Ross into some sort of City of London stockbroker or merchant banker. In fact, Charles Edward Ross was promoting a dry-cleaning franchise that began in Scotland!
Now enters John Sheffield whose daughter married Jocelyn Stevens - just before Jocelyn Stevens bought 'The Queen' magazine. Initially in his original book, Rusling claimed that Stevens inherited money from his uncle and then bought the magazine from him. Neither of those statements is true! But how would Rusling know? He does no research and steals from incomplete hypotheses - some proving to be true, and some untrue. But we work like the police work in solving 'cold case' crimes.
First of all you have to identify the 'likely' suspects and then you have to work through the list. Some get cleared with a sound alibi, and some do not. The ones who do not are the ones who are then charged with having committed the crime. We do the same thing sifting through the available evidence, and then we embark on a search for the information that others missed.
Rusling does none of this!
So Rusling ends up with all kinds of ridiculous claims. He is unaware that back in 1960, Jocelyn Stevens was the director of a spin-off holding company started by John Sheffield, or even that Jocelyn Stevens for a brief time, took control of Planet Productions Ltd in Ireland and listed his directorship on the company documents! We know all this because we bought the entire company file of Planet Productions Limited from the Irish government!
Chris Edwards of OEM also acquired the entire company file of Project Atlanta Limited with its shareholders. What we did is to go on a long and expensive search to identify these people! When we discovered who one of them was, an amazing story about Churchill's top secret World War II agencies came to light. We will be telling you more about that later on.
As for 'Arthur Carrington', he was the long discarded figure who was really an expert on television camera installations! There is absolutely no credibility for Rusling's statements where he tries to paper over the missing bits in his story by using the person of Arthur Carrington. He did exist and we have tracked-down his career record, and it does not include being the electronic mastermind of Radio Caroline. Perhaps that is one of the most glaring lines of rubbish that constantly appears in Rusling's work about the origin of the Radio Caroline project, and how it really began.
Forget 1964, or 1963 when Project Atlanta was formed which is also the year when Crawford first met O'Rahilly. Turn the clock all the way back to 1959-1960. That was the beginning!
In 1960 Jocelyn Stevens teamed-up with John Sheffield, but Stevens was primarily interested in printing and publishing. In fact, Stevens apprenticed himself to learn the craft of printing!
But how many of you know that the first local UK radio station went on line in 1960, or that it was quickly followed by a second station? Both had station names and both were tied into the initials of CBC - which are not a reference to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. However, CBC was the financial backbone of Project Atlanta Limited, and that company morphed into becoming the backbone of Radio Caroline.
Beatrix Miller quit Jocelyn Stevens on the very day that Planet Productions Limited was formed in Ireland. Why? Because Stevens was embarking on a plan to turn her aristocratic fantasy girl named Caroline, into a teenage slut with money! That is how Radio Caroline got its name, with a reputation.
Rusling claims that the Peter Sellers' home movie became known as the 'Duchess of Caroline'. No it didn't. The movie title is called 'I Say, I Say, I Say' and Peter Sellers' made-up coat of arms and his home movie dedication are to the "Duke and Duchess of Caroline" - who are identified in that film as Mr and Mrs Jocelyn Stevens!
There is so much that Rusling does not know and so much that he and others have made up, that the blending of his mixture of fiction with proven researched fact has made it a headache on a major scale to separate one from the other. We will leave that for Mike Wilson to deal with. Sorry Mike!
What we are now going to do now is scrap our original manuscript and create another, still as a partwork publication, but this one will be structured around our unique YesterCode. It will simplify this complicated story and make it more difficult to steal.
Keep an eye on what Mike Wilson will be doing after we ship the two Rusling volumes to him. Being the holiday season, there may be a longer than usual delay in getting both books to him.
Also keep returning here and to our companion Blog for more information about the real story behind Radio Caroline. We guarantee that it is nothing like the nonsense that others have published to date.
See our gift to all who have the best interests of humanity at heart on our companion Blog.
But here's good news. We collected a copy of Paul Rusling's latest literary swindle today, and yes, he tried to do what we thought he would do. Our own authentic review will follow after a slight pause for a holiday ....
That's right, no book!
Still no book from Paul Rusling.
What is Rusling playing at?
No person that we have located Online seems to have received and then reviewed his so-called 'updated-bible' book.
When we announced plans to have Mike Wilson review the 'updated' Rusling book in depth - after we have received it and performed a quick glance-through - which will be prior to sending it on to Mike Wilson by Priority Mail - Rusling wrote that he would offer to give everyone who bought the first version of his 'bible' a free copy in pdf of his 'updated' manuscript. Overnight an Admin on the Garry Stevens Forum amended that post. Then, the next day Rusling wrote that he was 'clarifying' his offer. He was offering to give buyers of the original version a 'compendium' of changes in the 'updated' version.
But we do not trust anything that Rusling writes or says and here is why:
First he offered to become a financial contributor to our team and he visited our sub-library twice, as well as sending us numerous emails. Then he stabbed us in the back with his ridiculous 'bible' and got someone that he branded "Sir" to write that we had endorsed it!
So we complained and he removed that endorsement and claimed that it was not really an endorsement but a thank you for allowing him to steal our research and then twist it to fit the stupid O'Rahilly-Smith 'Caroline lives' narrative.
When that didn't work, Rusling claimed that what we had researched and uncovered was public knowledge - which it wasn't and still isn't - because we have continued our research uncovering information that Rusling did not, and still does not have access to.
Now the problem with Paul Alexander Rusling is that before releasing his original 'bible' he published several pages as 'samples' which differed from the text in his published 'bible'. So his first edition was really the first complete edition and not the first edition.
Then he announced publication of his second or 'updated' edition for November 2, 2021, which we still don't have, even though we placed an order at the end of October in advance of the publication date. Now he is offering to send out free of charge a manuscript - but his offer has even changed in description within a 48 hour time window.
Rather than tip our hand and show Rusling what we now know, we decided to wait until we saw what Paul Rusling is claiming to be his updated manuscript in a book. That is why we bought his 'updated bible', and perhaps that is why we have not received it.
Something is being shipped to us, the bookseller says, but since Rusling's updated cover is exactly the same as his original cover - apart from a tiny yellow sticker in the bottom left-hand corner of the illustration of his own book, his manuscript could contain anything. In view of his constant changes he could be churning our weekly 'updates' for all we know and trying to stay one jump ahead.
Therefore, if we tell our readers what we now know - in detail - Rusling could steal that information and put it in a new manuscript and send it out to his readers and by so doing claim that he had already 'published' material that we claim is new! The legal definition of the word 'publishing' would allow him to do just that.
Rusling is an intellectual property thief and a plagiarist. He will stoop to any low level necessary to achieve his end, but we cannot be seen legally to have assisted him in his theft. The law requires that we mitigate our loss (as a result of his theft) by taking all steps necessary not to allow Rusling to continue stealing and get away with it. That is what the law requires us to do if we want to seek financial damages from him.
So at the moment we cannot publish anything (other that what is on our blogs, or in academic articles or journalistic articles or in radio and TV program scripts, or in books! By constantly claiming that one person and not three people are behind this work, Rusling thinks that he is being clever by demanding to know where is that promised book by the person he has called 'Haggerly'? But no such promise has been made and that person as described does not exist.
There was even this anonymous (Rusling?) post on Mike Wilson's 'Conversation Now' at 08:34:44 am on December 18, 2021 and headed "Dial 999 for Caroline". It referred to a statement posted on November 24, 2020 at 11:55:36 am: "Over at yesternoir.org an announcement will be made very soon how you can get a copy of 'Dial 999 for Caroline' - almost free of charge for a limited time to a limited few." That was long before Rusling announced his 'updated' book and before we placed an advance order for it.
By the precise quoting of our comments it is obvious the Paul Rusling and his cronies are well aware of what we are publishing, and both he and they are quite capable of lifting our own research for Rusling's use - which they have done before.
Therefore, until we see a time and date stamped 'updated' manuscript by Paul Rusling, we are not able to move ahead for legal reasons of mitigation of damages. Once we receive something in the name of Paul Rusling that is time and date stamped, that puts a halt to his ability to steal and claim that he already knew something that our PAID research has uncovered, then, and only then, can we tell you what we now know for a fact!
When that will be is entirely in the hands of Paul Alexander Rusling.
