There was a Tug of War competition as part of the Jubilee Sports in 1977. This celebrated the queen’s 25 years on the throne and now is some 38 years ago.
After the more formal competition, the kids took over and had fun and here’s a photo of them.
The flared trouser fashion of 1977 is there to be seen as these youngsters desperately try to pull a similar team . Except the other team was all female.
History has not recorded who won this particular battle of the sexes.
Nor, sad to say, has it recorded the names of any participants. Maybe you can help there.
