S.S. Brighton

Benny Lee

By Steven Booth

My aunt, Eileen Whybrow, was personal secretary to Benny in the early 1960s, and I met him several times as a child. He would 'arrange' for me to win the jackpot on the fruit machine he then kept in his office! I often skated at the S.S. and watched wrestling by Dale Martin Promotions when the ice was boarded over to make way for the wrestling ring.
