Monday 6th September 1976


OK, this needs an explanation. I remember this day quite well, especially the divers who were diving in an old pit to retrieve a submerged car. Possibly it was an army/police/forces show-off day at a barracks near Colchester. Dad used to teach archery, something that figured a lot in my childhood. I remember the rolly-pollys too, which is quite impressive, though clearly not as impressed as my teacher was.
