Food, glorious food!Aged 16-18 and permanently on the go from dawn to dusk we were always hungry.Cookhouse raids were frequent, once a whole churn of milk was trundled out and on another a whole side of ham was acquired. We never considered that we were robbing others, and I cannot recall anyone ever getting caught.Another highlight was Sweaty Betty's burger van outside the gates. I can still smell it now. The burgers were lush but I doubt whether they or the van passed any health checks!Another dodge was to get yourself onto a school sports team. At certain times this would entitle you to an extra supper which was usually a huge steak. Well worth the effort.Streak Hobson, 54b
