The Silly Fakirs '56
(or something like that we were called!).  Real fire,
real nails, no padding.

Pole Squat '56. I made the pole,
and persuaded Les Arnett to sit on it all morning.
(This I tore out from the local paper, there is an advert on
the back for a Bungalow priced at 750!)

Mike Dixon with no trousers (I was co-opted at very short
notice),Dave something in the so'wester, Gerry Evans in
the bowler,
Ken Sinden with the pole and I think John Mills, with
bowler, is on the far right.
(The bowlers were from a year earlier when the
apprentices decided that the college
uniform should include a bowler.)
