Saints man Geoff Cropper was a keen sportsman who also supported Leeds United and was a former cricketer and footballer, playing for Prescot Grammar School.
Bob Connolly has written to The Prescotian about the famous cartoon that was printed in the annaul PGS Journal in the early seventies, ” Re ‘The Corpseman 1975?’ Press article. ‘Corpseman’ was a Creepy Tales comic strip by Terry McDonnell in the 1972 Prescotian. He credited it to an original idea by me, but the concept of a death-dealing undertaker anti-superhero was all his, although inspired in some way by my interest in graveyards, Victorian statuary and undertaker fashion. I suppose this book could be described as a long-awaited sequel: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Over-Your-Dead-Body-history/dp/1517763630
However, The Prescotian has received an appeal for details of one such item from Gary Hogan, who left in 1975.
Gary writes, “I am attending a party in September with about a dozen of my old school friends
It is black tie and I was wondering:-
a ) whether there are any (old) PGS boys bow ties in existence which I could purchase? or
b) whether there is a manufacturer I could contact to make some for me?
The illustration from above comes from a New Zealand website found on Google by entering “blue black bow tie”. [Ed]
