W. G. Underwood

(July 04 Caption Competition)

The winning caption was:

" Mr. Underwood was so pleased, that at times like this he had not learned to play the bagpipes! " 

Congratulations to Ray Jones and thanks to Chris Davis for judging.

The actual commentary from BMG February 1931 was:

"W.G. Underwood, a sailor on board H.M.S. Calypso has adopted a new style of playing the banjo aloft while hanging by his teeth. He tells me (editor Emile Grimshaw) that the tune he was playing when this photograph was taken was "Lenton Waltz". He also says that "although a simple tune, it always goes down well when played in this manner at a height of twenty feet."
