Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

So - here they are in all their glory, at the height of their powers, doing "Gangsters." See if it doesn't give you goosebumps.
