Ianto came up from the archives chuckling, waving an old newspaper.
“You lot have got to see this!”
Gathering around him, they looked at the paper, The South Glamorgan Gazette, 20th August 1949.
The front page held a grainy photograph captioned ‘Jack Harry Teesdale of Cardiff displays his prize-winning leek at the South Glamorgan Agricultural Show.’
Jack, dressed in his usual attire minus the coat, beamed out at them from under a flat cap, holding up a gigantic leek.
“Teesdale?” inquired Ianto.
Jack was unapologetic.
“Couldn’t use my real name. I won ten shillings for Best In Show!”
