Bombay chronology problems
According to Jeff Seitz and considering the travelling issues (flying from Sydney to Bombay) The Police arrived in Bombay late on March 24 - with probably no sightseeing or filming activities on that day...
so what exactly happened on March 25 and what on March 26 ?
Costume photo shoot and sword fight
According to an Evening News report from March 31 the sword fight where Anne Nightingale was injured happened on an "early morning"
here's Sting and Stewart with Anne and journalists
and here's The Police in (almost) full costumes Sting wears the same clothes underneath as in the pictures above - Stewart seems to wear a black STEEL PULSE shirt that can also be seen in one of the image above, Andy wears his usual Hawaiian outfit
HMV and instruments
March 25 - should have been THE day for most of the sightseeing
Ravi Burman told me about the HMV get-together and the Instruments Shop
this is from HMV
are these from HMV, too ?? and from the instruments shop ?? one of my first problems is that Sting and Andy only wear white shirts and not the sweater / Hawaiian shirt respectively
the costume photo shoot had Andy wearing a white trouser, whereas here he's wearing a dark one...
I think that these screenshots might be at their hotel later that day... Andy's wearing the Hawaii shirt again :(
According to a report by Allan Jones the mongoose / snake fight was on the day of the concert, so that these photos (with Sting wearing his pool billard shirt) are probably, too
Jeff Seitz remembers that he participated in the sightseeing day - and the Time and Talents meeting - but was at the venue all day on March 26 --- so this is another contradiction
the band wears the same clothes visiting the Time and Talents club later
later that evening at soundcheck or thereabouts - another clothes change
next day - Sting and Andy flew to Cairo ---- how many Hawaii shirts did Andy have - just one ??? must have smelled quite a bit...
now even if they took off sweaters and shirts because of the heat where exactly do these fit in ??? Sting wears his white shirt (as on the instruments shop photos - where Andy can be seen wearing a black trouser !!) and here outside Andy wears white trousers (as on the Mongoose / concert day)
