THE UK NINE - FIVE CLUB
( 9.5mm )
The 9.5mm movie film gauge, introduced
in 1922 in France by Pathé-Baby, part of the then giant

Our UK Group 9.5 Club was formed, way back in 1962 by
the late Larry Pearce and the late Paul Van Someren with a view
to provide a future for the Pathé 9.5mm home movie film gauge
once commercial backing dissapeared. Publication of a magazine
began and regular meetings were held. Weekly meetings began in
August 1962 at Alperton, North London, run by the late Larry
Pearce who lived nearby. Soon the meetings included an Annual
Get-Together which later featured a 9.5mm amateur film
competition. A number of local sections sprang up and the London
Section still exists, meeting about every three weeks.
