That surely does bring back some very good memories.
4th pic down looks like the Axe and Compasses, I was there on Friday evening and camped at Villa Farm before going to Busfreeze. I remember very fondly meetings in those days and the people.

the top photo of the bus from action '91 was Dave somthing from Lytham, who changed the colours nearly every year. Last I saw of it it was in Streetwagens farm looking very sorry for itself, with wooden sills and two roofs!
Fantastic photos of a very young Mr Squeeky.
Must learn how to post photos 8O

Are you some sort of time Lord Mr Yip? You dont look and older with your bomber jacket on, altough you do look a bit camp :-)
I think you captured the scene at it's best mate and just like Final Fling just gone that's what it's all about!


Keep the photo's coming mate! I'd post my own but we were so poor we had just a black board and chalk!


Cheers

After the Axe and Compasses picture then there is the Stanford Hall line up followed by Villa Farm (I would recognise those humps anywhere!!). Fairly convinced in the camping pics I can see Amanda in short dungarees but would need a magnifying glass to be sure as my eyesight is not as good as it used to be.

What good days they were, Amanda and Trevor remember them fondly. Matthew does not remember much of his early years of camping so does not have such good memories (although there have been some good camps).
