According to Paul Rusling in his 'bible', the Fetter Lane address came before the Regent Street address, and he bases this on another statement in which he claims that Ian Cowper Ross had and an office on Fetter Lane at Queen' magazine from where Radio Caroline was managed.
But then, according to Rusling, after "a month or so .... Jocelyn Stevens soon tired of the venture ...." and that he became "concerned that when a writ arrived from the music copyright agents it was to his office."
Then writes Rusling: "A temporary mailing address in Regent Street was used, with just a secretary and the sales staff based there until Oonagh found a lovely seven story townhouse in Chesterfield Gardens ...."
Rusling then adds that: "On the upper floors were more offices, which Oonagh would let out to friends in the burgeoning music industry." There is no mention of who owned the building, or how Dick Morecraft came to be employed by Harry Meadows.
Also notice the vagueness in Rusling's account.
There are no dates.
There is just a general storyline that is recited as if it is fact that Fetter Lane came first, and then came Regent Street. But that is not true at all. First came Regent Street and then came Fetter Lane.
Jocelyn Stevens never did get "tired of the venture".
All of this we can, and we will prove as fact.
So it seems that if we want to know more about the Rusling version of the time sequence, then we have to know more about Oonagh, and according to Rusling, her last name is "Huggard".
Tomorrow we will address those questions about her identity, and the dates in question.
