The Troggs: Soft-hearted Reg Presley

Keith Altham, New Musical Express, 4 November 1966

REGINALD MAURICE BALL is a soft-hearted ex-bricklayer born in Andover on June 12, 1943, who reads the Daily Mirror, is particularly sensitive to anything which he feels involves cruelty to either animals or children ("I can't stand bullfighting or fox-hunting"), and gets physically sick when he reads of the tragedy of the children of Aberfan.
