You can find it on Facebook (and elsewhere) under the 'Radio Caroline Investigation' page - it is still there!
The fact that few bothered to read it matters not, because it is proof that before Paul Rusling decided in 2019 to engage in promoting a non-existent 'Jimmy Ross' - see his 'bible' page 51: ".... Jimmy Ross hoped that a family investment ...." - there was this challenge on Facebook!
To his shame and to his ignorance, Paul Rusling ignored it. Instead, he sold his make believe story about 'Jimmy Ross' to all the fools who would buy it. This is what the challenge still says:
Can you name a source for the original funding of Radio Caroline back in 1964 - that is NOT connected (in other words has not come from), the nonsense spread by Ian Cowper Ross in 1990 when he published 'Rocking the Boat'?
This INCLUDES all of the follow-up interviews by Ian Cowper Ross on BBC-TV (Arena), and later, as told to Ray Clark.
Can you name ANY source PRIOR to 1990?
The telegram given to Ray Clark by Ian Cowper Ross is probably a fake that was created sometime around 1990, in order to support the launch of his book by his mother-in-law Lady Killearn.
ALL of the various stories about 'Jimmy Ross' and ties to Ross Foods; Car Phone Warehouse; Jensen Cars; etc., etc., are sheer rubbish.
We know who his father was, and we know his name and his mother's name, and we may now know when his father died.
Ian Cowper Ross places himself at 'Caroline House' where he observed Denny Cordell as an office boy, prior to Denny Cordell becoming a producer for the same company he was working with. The only problem is that there were AT LEAST TWO PLACES called 'Caroline House' and the one where Denny Ross was working was NOT at 6 Chesterfield Gardens.
Having already PROVED beyond any doubt that the hoax story about 'Caroline Kennedy' was launched in March 1965 from New York, I now throw down a new challenge:
Can you produce ANY proof that the 'Jimmy' story spun by Ian Cowper Ross, in order to promote and sell his book, originated earlier than circa. 1990?
This is the story about 'Jimmy', and the Ian Cowper Ross MG that was supposedly driven to Hindhead/Haslemere by Ronan O'Rahilly, with Chris Moore on board in order to see the father of Ian Cowper Ross to ask him for money to fund Radio Caroline.
I say that the entire story is a LIE.
Without that story the entire mythological world of pipe dream lies spread by Ronan O'Rahilly crashes to the ground, because we have already investigated his claims to starting a 'acting school'; his inability to get a recording made and played by Georgie Fame, etc., etc., and they are all absolute rubbish.
Ronan O'Rahilly lived the life of a liar.
Without the 'Jimmy' story, everything that has been so far told to the public about the start of Radio Caroline is rubbish.
By rubbish, I mean that it is a hoax, a myth, or to put it bluntly: a lie.
Prove me wrong by producing ANY evidence to predate the 'Jimmy' myth.
If you can, then we will tackle the myth itself, because it can be proved to be not a true story.
But right now, all I am seeking is something to predate 1990 as its point of origin.
I am not claiming that it doesn't exist, but I am stating that the story is a hoax, and if it can't be predated earlier than 1990, then it will support our preliminary conclusion that the origins of Radio Caroline are to be found within the extended family of Lady Killearn.

That was written and posted on Facebook in 2018, but we have come a long way in our investigation since then!
We now know that Ian Cowper Ross' father was Charles Edward Ross and his mother's first name was named Phyllis. He had an older step-brother named Charles Cowper Ross who was in business on the King's Road, Chelsea - but not with his younger brother Ian Cowper Ross!
We now know that while Ian crashed a Jensen car into a bus in Derbyshire at approximately age 18 - which landed him in court; his father Charles Edward was a director of a sports car manufacturer.
At the moment we are awaiting proof that the company he worked for was the Jensen Motor Car company in Birmingham - which might explain how his reckless son got hold of such an expensive car. For a time Jenson was owned by the Norcros financial holdings group, before Norcros unloaded Jensen as a financial flop.
All of this goes to the lack of credibility in the stories told by people like Paul Rusling regarding the source of funding for the 'Radio Caroline' project in 1964.
