1965 – Age 5 modelling the latest look in beachwear. Again designed and made by my mum, a towel folded in half with a hole cut out of the middle to make a natty poncho but I think it’s the straw trilby that gives it that 'je ne sais quoi!' The transport is a Bedford van converted into a camper by my Dad. We had loads of family holidays in this – talk about the Hill Billies!
