These publicity photographs were almost certainly taken by Willoughby Gullachsen, who was employed on many Pebble Mill dramas to take stills used for press and publicity.

The photographs show the army top brass in the three part 1989 drama, Vote for Them, written by David Edgar and Neil Grant.

Thanks to costume designer Janice Rider for sharing the photos.

The following comment was left on the Facebook page:

Neil Grant: ‘The officers in the foreground are Colonel Raymond Pugh, left, played by John Rowe, and the Brigadier, played by the late James Grout.’

‘Rachel and the Roarettes’ was a rock musical….lesbian bikers in the present, highway women in the 17th century, like you did in 1984!
