Yep, I've just re-read it too, my mistake - that's how myths are spread! Thanks MoM, I didn't know you cared!

Anyhow the pic below (thanks Alex)... ... is a low quality photo of a photocopy from the Radio times 4th Dec 1969. Do I recall that someone was querying the appearance of Fred Perrys until 1970? Although the definition in the photo is very poor and I can't see any logo, I would say that the bloke third from left is wearing an FP, and maybe even the...

Some more photos from '71. Arenal July 71 Arenal July 71. I think buttons on the collars are undone to make them 'flip out'? Arenal July 71

In an article which I pm'd to MoM, written in 1972, (I'll post it if you like) it stated that the only heroes that Skinheads had were footballers.
