A Happy Coincidence . .

Re: A Happy Coincidence . .

Certainly not the style I remember Gil sporting. The khaki issue he wore at school camp could have been Indian army demob issue.

Fleeting glimpses of same can be seen in the photos :
"Foragers 1/2" and "Staff Camp Ablutions". Personal recollection of these and those worn to referee school games showed very little knee - and the stockings were semi-contiguous.

Further glimpses can be seen in "Keighlians versus Bradford, Lawkholme" and "Keighlians RUFC" (1951)

Years at KBGS e.g. 1958-1964 (optional) 1952-60

Current location (optional) Nirvana

I remember those shorts. I haven't seen so much fabric since I last saw the Tall Ships race.
