Small minds? Can't argue with you there! smile p

I'm a great fan of the knotted handkerchief especially when worn with braces over ones pullover.

Wearing of a school cap was enforced at my school and a snood when I was an apprentice in the machine shops. I do not like wearing a hat but it is preferable to a burnt head so a panama and RayBans combat the sun, staying in the shade or indoors is my preference.

I was once reported to the headmaster of Parminter's Grammar School (Bethnal Green) for failing to wear my school cap on a 253 bus to Hackney. We had a lecture at school assembly about wearing our caps in public.

Early lesson in sheet work, putting a bend in sheet material creates stiffning.

Grasp cap in fist such that peak is forced into a tight curve. Wack school freind on head with cap creating a satisfying thwap noise. Run away quick.

Great fun school caps.

We had the lectures that we represented the school while in uniform which certainly put a damper on getting up to no good after school. I cycled to school and was adept at getting my cap out of my pocket and putting it on my head as I got near enough to school to be spotted by the masters who used the bus to get to school. The peak fitted nicely inside the cap so that it could be stowed nearly flat in your blazer pocket ready for action if required.
