Brockenhurst College Presentation and Christmas, Hampshire - 19th December 1985

It's the certificate presentation following the summer's A-level exams at Brockenhurst College, in the heart of the New Forest. Nosher's back from Plymouth Polytechnic for the Christmas holidays and even hires a 135mm lens for the occasion (from Nicholas Gossip, the camera shop in New Milton). There's also a round-up of other Christmas randomness, including Nosher's Sis in a sponsored bed-push around Brockenhurst (for which Nosher, Hamish and others were providing some CB-radio-based support) and some beer 'n' stick-game in one of Brockenhurst's hostelries - a final gathering of some old sixth-form college chums. Finally, there ar four "lost" photos from earlier in the year, including a couple of CB-buddy Brian "The Blue Flame"'s 5.7 litre Corvette. On a couple of occasions, we would take this over to the empty car park on Hengistbury head and take it in turns doing crazy skids and handbrake turns.
