Big Al Whittle BS: Black Anne Boleyn (67* d) RE: BS: Black Anne Boleyn 02 Jun 21

I always thought the black face traddy thing was to do with miners , being the spirit of the strength that comes from coal.

I seem to remember something in AL Lloyd's book about it.

Still I guess that's the trouble with an unwritten constitution - no one really knows the roots of anything.

The Black and White Minstrels were a pain in the arse - worse than Rolf Harris and the Younger Generation. I was glad when we had an excuse to get rid of the buggers.

I would have tipped them all the black spot and made 'em walk the plank.
