Ah back in days when you could work in a machine shop wearing just a brown jacket for protection. The world must have been a much safer place in those days.

Used to go to scrambles as a nipper, helping my Dad set up the PA system, then being a runner for the people in the control caravan, usually getting teas.

Loved watching it & soon learned not to spectate on the outside of bends.

Yep on Grandstand, me and me dad glued to it, Dave Bickers, Vic Eastwood? and Murray walkers genius commentary, all Greaves and BSA's i think.

Jackie Pallow , Mick McManus , Les Kellet , Kendo Nagasaki and the Royal Brothers . The football results brought to you by Teleprinter and snooker in black and white all followed by Tom and Gerry and Dr Who . What wonderful times they were .

Used to watch the wrestling with my Gran, she’d bring a bag of sweets & everyone would leave us to it.
It was only talking to my Mum, long after my Gran died that I found out that she was just perving over the guys in tight costumes, apparently she used to like the snooker - watching those smartly dressed men bending over in their tight trousers.
Good on her I say !!
God bless you Flo
