Somans: A Soman-Wherry Press Boat Trip, Horning, The Broads, Norfolk - 8th May 1988

This is one of those completely random entries from an event that Nosher was not even at. It's conjectured that this was probably a Soman's staff or combined sales event (there are some non-Somans people in the shots) and the camera was lent out for the occasion (presumably as Nosher was otherwise occupied, which dimly rings a distant bell). It was held on the "Southern Comfort", a Broads-based paddle steamer which is still going (as of 2013). To complete the sense of utter randomness, there are a few frames from the end of the film when the camera seems to go on holiday - to somewhere in Italy by the looks of it. They include the landing of a large tuna fish on a beach somewhere. Perhaps one day the taker of the photo will see them and reveal their secrets.
