Uni: First Weeks At Polytechnic, Umbrellas and a Visit From Liz, Plymouth - 26th September 1985

It's the first weeks of Polytechnic. Liz, who had helped by giving Nosher a lift down with all his stuff (together with stepdad Andy and Mother in another car), comes down to visit a few weeks after the start of term. There's also the first night out with the lads in The Bank. On the way back from the pub, there's an all-time favourite photo of the "umbrella" scene in a subway under Royal Parade. Before all of that, there is some "going away" action around New Milton.
