Wayne's Jacket and Pat Roach - Series 1

Post by zrcg1 » Thu Jul 31, 2014 1:38 pm

Hi All,

Just found this site, been a fan since I was a kid, but dip out and in after revisiting my DVD collection every now and again.

Anyway found this site - brilliant info on the site locations. Most I knew of, and some I didnt ......

On to the point of this topic:-

Some time ago, I had the opportunity of purchasing Wayne Norris's jacket - the blue and red one from series one, from Pat Roach back in 2004. Prior to me having it, Pat's son used to wear it regularly until it became surplus to requirements.

I've owned it since, and I met Pat a few times after buying the jacket from him, on one occasion at his own gym in 2004 at Gravelly Hill, Erdington, in Brum.

There was a story around how he came by it, he was very friendly with Gary away from filming and Pat told me a few things about Gary in confidence which I maybe shouldn't repeat on here. He also mentioned the details surrounding Oz's series 1 jacket and why it wasn't used in series 2 I think, although my memory of this may not be 100%!

The jacket has been hanging in a framed case in my living room since then, together with various articles and a signed affadavit from Pat it was original (which it clearly is) together with some other documents.

Its a remarkable piece of history, i'm sure you will agree.

Aside from this Pat had one other jacket he treasured - one that Spielberg had made for them after filming the third Indiana Jones film ... it was embroidered and was pretty impressive I recall - Pat was one of three people to be involved in the first three films - Spielberg, Harrison Ford and himself. There were only 3 made and each of them had one - he wouldn't sell that, needless to say.

His gym was set up during the Indiana Jones filming while they were at Pinewood and was used by either Spielberg's or Harrison Ford's wife at the time from what I recall, I forget which.

Pat had some impressive kit, one thing I have is a photograph of the weights bench with my son lying on it used in the bond film "Never say never again" where Connery fights Roach in the gym. Pat mentioned he himself designed it specifically for that film.

Anyway, if anyone want's to actually see the jacket, its not a problem. I will attach some pictures if I can/am able - (it's my first post) ....

Regards
Chris

I remember seeing that jacket a while back on fleabay....never thought Id see it again so there you go. A huge part of AWP lore ! take care of it. Good to see you on here and good to know that you knew one of the magnificent 7.

Hope you enjoy the banter and stay a while.

Great stuff Chris,

I remember it been on ebay with the money going to charity.
Glad to see a fan getting it and not somebody who would just hold onto it
until they sold it again.
I bid on it but obviously not asa much as you :-)
