I always hated field trips as they inevitabely resulted in some penguin bashing; I learnt this fairly early during a 'Discovery' visit to Arundel in the first few weeks of my squits.

John Dennison and John Trappes-Lomax accompanied us in a minibus. I think we had a quick look at the exhibition before heading off to the pub (central London, wearing full housey).
Great fun. John Trappes-Lomax insisted on taking the train back to C.H. (presumably so that he could squeeze in a couple of swifties at The Bax before closing time).

Another trip was to Wimbledon - what a bore, given I could never stand the game even though it seemed top be available for only a week a year.
Less organised but far more enjoyable were the fortnightly overnight camping trips to Stone Farm Rocks .......
I later had the ? misfortune to be on the wrong side when some 20 grecians (in tatty jeans and worse) invaded the City firm I worked for; noisy, messy - definitely a turn-off. At least at my lecture on merchant banking the next year they turned up in uniform!
