Memories

Not a place for the faint hearted, (late fifties) plenty of beer fuelled action here.There was a regular who had what looked like a thimble stuck on his nose, turned out someone bit the end of his hooter off in a scrap, it was recovered and sewn back on at the nearby Public Dispensary. I don't think the surgeon would have earned much in the tailoring trade!
