It's back to work we go ...



Posted by Picasa
It had passed from my mind, until I saw these pictures belonging to Anna Behan (Collinge), that Flt. Lt. Southwood, inspired, doubtless, by PWD's habitual cry of "BAAAACK to work", at the end of one 1979 lunch break, organised and led a party of seven dwarfs singing "Heigh ho, heigh ho, it's back to work we go!" Here they are leading the team out onto the cuttings to the evident amusement of other assembled diggers. I cannot identify all seven: Messrs. Southwood, Dawson, Parker, Noakes and Taylor seem to feature (quelle surprise!). Can anyone help with the missing two? Who was Snow White? Where was she?

Julie-Ann Morrison (Souter) can be seen highly amused by Mike Taylor's efforts in the bottom photo.

For those who wish to relive parts of their childhood, I include below the relevant clip from YouTube. Song begins at 1' 18" and examination of the footage from 2' 00" onwards will reveal remarkable authenticity in the depiction of the catbashers...
