Hi peeps I had a conversation on Instagram with jon jon park and he remembers Adrian very well he said Reg rated Adrian very highly and was as strong as a ox and like Reg a natural athlete he said the last he heard of Adrian was he moved to America and worked as a doorman in nightclubs until he worked for Rex Harrison as a bodyguard he said Adrian was known as a incredibly strong tough guy

Thanks for the additional research :) Now we have finally some justice for this overlooked bodybuilder. He was certainly due far more respect than he received.

Whoever composed these listings got Ted Gutteridge's name wrong.
I remember him well & if I'm not mistaken I think he died around 10 years ago.
Also knew Dave Stroud -a Wallasey lad at the time.

Hi Handson, Ted was one of my favorites growing up.A real all round sportsman. He went to live in Australia [In another thread i wrongly said South Africa] in the early 1960's not long after winning the Mr.Britain title.Unfortunately he was killed in a traffic accident in the 1960s, so he passed away much longer than 10 years ago.
Regards,Peter.
