(Where did they steal the fish?)

Left to Right:  Irwin, ?, Muegge and Leaney in the early 1960s.

On this particular fishing trip, it was normal to pack a few necessities like the tin of baked beans, dry box of matches and an extra packet of fags in a bag with your hooks and sinkers.  

Niven turned up with his mother's bloody big cardboard hat box packed with tooth brush, cake, socks and undies!  Now of course we had no room for it inside Leaney's FB, so it had to go on the top.  

To cut a long story short, Niven arranged this hatbox next to his sleeping bag, zonks out and does not expect it to rain during the night.  

It rained.  In the morning Niven's mother cardboard had turned to mush!  Poor Niven moaned, and moaned and moaned like only Niven could moan, while Leaney and I kept asking him why he needed to bring a bloody hat box on a fishing trip!
