60 Years of Eagle Celebrated

Eagle Society member Phil Daniels has posted the first part of his video report on the 60th Anniversary of the Eagle in Southport on youtube. (The whole video will be split into at least three parts).

“The Eagle was the best of all Boys magazines ever, first published on 14th April 1950,” Phil enthuses. “I remember well getting my first copy and reading it for 10 years!

“This celebration was held in Southport, the town in Lancashire, UK, where it began its life.”
