Florence was humming along to a tune as she washed her jet black hair when Janice stood on a chair with a bag of cow dung then tipped it all over her before running into her tent.

“There was an almighty scream as Mrs Hudspeth ran out of the shower naked covered in cow muck.

The girls all came out of their tents and began to laugh at the sight of Mrs Hudspeth as her giant belly and bum wobbled about as she blindly searched for a towel to dry herself.

That night Miriam waited to see Tommy as he drove his tractor back to the farm yard.

“Thanks for what you did Tommy; we are ever so grateful.’

“See you in the Dunn Cow about seven then?

“Not if I see you first;

“Bring Janice along for George.”

“I will she voiced as she made her way back to the camp. Janice asked if she had seen Tommy when she arrived.

“Yes we are meeting them in the Dunn Cow again.”

“Oh can we not go somewhere else Janice moaned; there wasn’t many in there last week and if it hadn’t been for that piano player it would have been dead.”

“Well we will go to the pub first then ask if there is anywhere else that they would like to go.


This time the two men came in together they bought drinks then sat down.

“Can we go somewhere different tonight boys asked Janice.”

Well there’s the New York Club if you’d fancy or we could just go for a walk.

Maybe later Georgie; lets have some fun in the Club first.

The boys supped up then waited for the girls outside. When they came out; both women had been to the toilet. This was a luxury compared to the camp where they had to use the portaloo’s that were on the campsite.

Many times the young girls were caught short and had to go behind a hedge to use the toilet.

Again the peeping toms were out in force; luckily for Miriam it hadn’t happened to her yet.
