Perusing the old PAS Database as you do, normally just the first page of latest before looking at specifics, came across this offering today.
The photo initially caught my eye.
Reading the description; "Flamboyant " wreathed bust left, with " big hair " caused me to chuckle. :lol:
What a description !

Would not have been out of place as a character in " Up Pompeii "
Cheers, :thumbsup:
