When Gordon McIntosh and his wife honeymooned in Torquay, little did they know that they would come face to face with The Beatles.
Gordon's wife had seen The Beatles when they appeared in Hull in 1963.
During their stay in Torquay, they were near a hotel situated on a cliff top, and became aware of a brightly painted single decker bus. It turned out to be The Magical Mystery Tour bus that was being used in filming, with the Beatles on board. Gordon decided to find out where they were filming, determined to meet them and obtain their autographs for his wife. This turned out to be a Magical Mystery Tour for Gordon. He found the location was a large field. The set looked like a large tent from the front but there was no back to it and he watched as hundreds of film extras filed into the small tent. The bus came trundling into view and Gordon saw John Lennon on board looking out of the window. He rushed across and tapped on the window, mouthing to John, "Can I have your autograph?”
