I can no longer recall if I actually bought the first issue of COR!!
back in June of 1970, but I associate it with Rothesay & Port Bannatyne
where my family were on holiday at the time. I had seen the comic adver-
tised on TV at home, but it's during that fortnight on the Isle of Bute that I
see it in memory when I look back over 43 years into the past. Part of the
reason for that is seeing a kid reading a copy as we walked the streets of
the little seaside town, and I may even have spied it on a newsagent's
shelf at one point. I remember wanting to buy it, but can no longer
recollect if I ever got around to it or not.
However, it doesn't really matter a jot, as I recently acquired two
copies of that first issue to replace the one I may or may not have had
back in 1970. But if I didn't have it, it can't be regarded as a replacement
then, can it? True, but it's a replacement for the one I should have had, if
indeed I didn't have it - if that makes any sense. (Maybe my brother bought
it.) But don't get tied up in knots trying to understand whatever nonsense I
happen to be typing at the moment - instead, just take a look at the first
instalment of the very first issue of Cor!! Part two follows soon.
