'Dare was a very flamboyant character in the 1950s, calling himself 'Dore', French-dressed in cape and beret. Keen interest in Spiritualsm. Completed a manuscript called SATAN'S WOMEN, a study of sex and sorcery in Satanism. Ow ned a human skull, and many Indian religious artefacts. Those relics and manuscripts were lost long ago; but Dare did give lots of his stuff to a best friend in the late 1950s (now dead - and his widow won't speak to Reg Meuross - docent want to disturb spirits - let Paul rest in peace...)'.
