Yours truly as imagined by John 'Giovanni' Peters, when as an apprentice welder at Worsley Mesnes Ironworks during the mid-sixties.
Caricatures his speciality.

That's brilliant! I used to get in trouble for doing caricatures!

Fag ash Phil! Brilliant!

I had a mate at work many years ago who, when he was working would put his ciggie in the same position as Philip’s paintbrush. one day he forgot himself and set his cap on fire.

Great story DTease. And no doubt your former workmate would also have ended up with a fine Navy Cut.

Just think Johnny you could have had a job on the Daily Mirror drawing cartoons all day long...what a lovely occupation that would have been and well paid!
