Thankyou S24. We would climb on those two lions trying to put our heads in their mouths. It would be 1953 and I was nine years old, We were rehearsing for the Scout Pageant " Send Her Victorious". Happy day's. W/E.

You’re welcome.

I remember them well, although, I never got as close to them as you did :)
