Reading about Skinheads at School,reminded me when I was at School with Mods. It was 1964,there had been Bank Holiday trouble and Plans were being made for a Scooter Run for the next one.I was 14 and had become associated with the Mods at our School,I liked the Fashion and had already done a trip to Carnaby Street.There were also a lot of Greasers(and followers)at my Secondary Modern School.One became a Skinhead in later years.There was some fighting between the older...
