Lets just say that many, many, many years ago, I knew a young lady who had black satin sheets on HER bed.

Great for night time sporting activity, but somewhat useless for sleeping.

I trust this clarifies the situation.

Hot hot, JR! Not nights in white satin but black...interesting...tell u smore :oops:

Funny how this thread has exploded in the last few weeks...must be summertime!!

I haven't seen black satin sheets since those happy days of wandering around Biba in Kensington High Street!

No, I didn't buy any - thus contributing to the eventual closing down of the place! :cry:

Biba! Such a fabulous mail-order catalogue! I used to carry a copy concealed in my school books and have a browse in the Library when CH life and uniform seemed on the dreary side.

Half listening to the radio - some team in Beijing in some competition were nearly disqualified as their underwear did not match their shorts - brought back a school memory. My patrol, the Kingfishers, had reached the final of a county competition. At this time, in the Guide handbook it said that Girl Guides should wear navy knickers under their uniform. We were inspected for our uniform by busybodies - which included making us all touch our toes so that they could see our knickers. :roll: :roll: I'm glad to say that the Kingfishers of the 1st Christ's Hospital Girl Guide Company were the ONLY patrol to score full marks for our knickers that day! We did not win overall but were in the top three and the top for our Division, and yes I was its leader at the time!

Later I had to go to receive a shield for our efforts that day from somewhere in Hertford, walking back through the town we learnt that the President of the USA had been assassinated. It was the very last time I ever wore Guide uniform!

So you weren't in Prep like those of us in the years behind you, when we learned of President Kennedy's assassination? That's an interesting observation...... I recall that my year was in Prep in the ?Lower or ?Upper Fifth. Miss Richards (SWWNBM elsewhere on this Forum) came by the front of the School Block, jumped up, banged on the window, and gave us the news. It is said that for everyone the death of President Kennedy is a fixed memory point (also the case when they heard about 9/11). I remember that evening, vividly (and I remember when and where I was when I heard about 9/11 and the London bombings......)
(think we have moved this thread away from underwear! Congratulations on getting your Guide troupe to wear navy knickers, Katharine. Some of them might have been a bit faded and then could not have been classified as 'navy blue'..)

I think we did actually talk about our blues (Knickers) before the competition and agreed that we all had them on!

You would have been UV Kerren, as I was LVI then.

November 1963, and I can remember it vividly.

I remember Friday 22 November 1963 when J F Kennedy was assassinated as I was run over by a car on the same day but fortunately for me, if not for others, not seriously injured other than a badly bruised foot and shock.

A policeman turned up at our house to take a statement from me and just as my father was about to turn the TV off a newsflash came through saying that JFK had been shot and seriously wounded. My parents and the PC then started talking about the implications when a second newsflash announced that the President was dead.

The policeman eventually remembered why he was in the house in the first place and took my statement!
