Off to Germany on Wednesday went Surbiton's latest pop-star.

She is 18-year-old Sally Cursons, of 31 Minniedale, one of the all-girl beat group known as the Alleycats whose record "Is It Something That I Said?" was released last week and is already No. 15 in the Radio-Caroline charts.

Guitarist Sally, a former pupil of Tiflin Girls' School, was a comptometer-operator at Winthrop House, Surbiton, before joining the Ivy Benson band last May, where she has joined up with the five other Alleycats.

During the 12-week German tour, the Alleycats, with the rest of Ivy Benson's band, will tour American service-bases round Frankfurt.
