I'll be visiting home on June 5th with friends from Stroud for a Swindon General Strike walk. We'll be calling in at the Beehive. I'm intending to read a couple of Reg eulogies outside the County Ground at 3pm. Shrivenham Road side. That's the plan. I imagine we'll be in the pub about one o'clock. We'll be about six in number from Stroud.

Re the Beehive. Best to check nearer the time, but doesn't look as if they'll be reopening until 21st June.

Will have something ready for you by the agreed date, if not before. Coming along nicely.

Not sure if you checked/received the DM on here but there's a little more info there, from what I remember Smiley

Excellent. Looking forward to it, Bamboonoclue. Pardon my ignorance, what's the DM mean etc.? Apologies for my ignorance. It's a Reg thing, I suppose. I remember being on a bus with Reg near Marlborough and saying that a friend of mine was constantly complaining about the fact that I seemed to be stuck in the year 1797/8. Reg replied straightway, 'Dunno what he's moaning about. I'm stuck in the Neolithic, mate.'

Sounds like you could make a pretty good surrogate Reg if you cared to stick around on here for a bit WoT.

What are your views on right backs and Burslem Port Vale?

As an outside right in my youth, I was more bothered about left backs. But as regards right backs, my dad played for Swindon Buses in the 1930s and a team mate was Terry Wollen's dad. Terry's career alongside John Trollope cut short by a broken leg in the 1962-3 season. As regards Burslem, living in Stroud, the nearest football league team is Forest Green Rovers. A mere hamlet.

Though Reg would have argued that Burslem was smaller. Against all available evidence.

I would however take issue with Wikipedia's claim that Nailsworth, at 5794 inhabitants, is "the smallest settlement ever to host an English Football League team". Who knows which club is currently located in a smaller parish?

Thanks for the piece, Bamboonoclue. It's the General Strike/Reg Smeeton commemorative walk on Saturday. I imagine we'll be remembering Reg outside the Shrivenham Road stand at 3pm. Will share your piece, Bamboonoclue. But will be great to remember together up the Beehive, sometime. All the best, WoT.
