Uni: The RAG Hit Squad, Plymouth - 8th February 1987

For a contribution to the RAG charity, Ian Dunwoody and his gang of masked hoodlums would flour, splurge or soak in mystery goo anyone upon request - even staff on at least one occasion. This set of photos is from a "day in the life" of the hit squad, as they target students in the SU. One of the victims then immediately exacts righteous vengeance on the perpetrator and the whole hit squad ends up in a massive flour fight on top of the PPSU building.
