    Such a great pic, Note all wearing plain Button down shirts , various jumpers, the Jungle greens are another variant, if you look closely the pockets are the normal slit type, on these they would have had only one flapped pocket at the back, I suppose different areas Army surplus stores would have had their own suppliers,
    Also all are wearing black boots, which was a little more popular than Ox Blood in the 60s.

    Just to add think the lad at the back is wearing a stripped BD.

    Looking at the Smiffies all have normal length hair as for the times, Like all originals we only had cropped hair for a very short while, maybe two or three visits to the Barbers before we grew the crop out. Three visits whats that Six months. Makes you wonder why we was called skinheads in the first place.:)

    Bristol City 'skinheads' from 1970 - not a baldy in sight.

    Yea, I've often wondered that too. My hair was always similar to that of the tall bloke in the middle of the back row in that photo, very short with a side parting. Also at many schools in the 60s and early 70s, close crops were prohibited. I saw a few boys sent home for having crops that were too short.

    The thing is too, that what a lot of skinheads of the 80s punk-skinhead period onward don't understand (especially those overseas) is that those boys in that photo, by early 70s standards, had short hair. Because the non-skinhead boys and boys already out of school had long hippy or prog rock hair. Anything shorter than collar length was skinhead, suedehead, smoothie, rudeboy.


    Me at home in Notting Hill in 82/83, newly demobbed from RAF Regt, on way into Met Police in July 83, Adidas Samba, tennis shirt, crease in jeans, suedehead haircut. Keeping the faith!

    Honest, in 1968 it was an insult - what the greebos called us. If you had used it to one of us you'd have got a fat lip. We didn't adopt the name until 1969, as far as I recall.
