    Big Derek was a bas’#’# to play polo against. Greenyer had arms like superman. I was club swimming champion 2 years in a row 74/75. A bairn being thrown in amongst that lot of barracudas! They were all top blokes.

    Thanks for your comment David. It is always good to hear from someone like yourself with good memories of one of the photos in our collection. It always adds something more to the photo.
