Jackie Favarin who kindly submitted this image writes: ‘This is one of the pictures drawn by Jim Needle who was the Oxford Mail’s cartoonist, which used to hang in the Carpenter’s Arms in Jericho. I can remember at least the first names of most of those caricatured:

In the tank: Kevin; Shane the pub Labrador; Graham; Dave Hawkins (moustache); Lyn (blonde); Kate; Bill Hynes (green/white); Sean; Gerry; ??; Tommy (glasses + a pint)
Next row: Allan McLaughlin; Bernard (ex bus driver); Dennis Price (Welsh); Neil Cranham (Kenneth Cranham’s brother); Doug Low
Back row: Aly (Scottish); Bill Mooney (Northern Ireland); Barbara Siret (Landlady); Ken Siret (Landlord)

I was then working in the Tutorial Office – Jackie Brentnall.’
