Did you know….

In his spare time Dave (Doughboy) Thomas swats up on the railway timetables from May 1921 to September 1927, in the vain hope that he will get chosen to go on mastermind and meet John Humpries. He was indeed very close to apperaing back in 1996 when his chosen subject was The history of vinyl floor coverings in Britain, sadly he was pipped at the post by a gentlemen in Norfolk who had the same idea and eventually got to the second round. This vinyl junkie was pipped by the eventual winner whose subject was the railway timetables of east london pre war. Its a very small world.
