Scope and content

Bill Daniels aged 12. Bill grew up to become a Morris Dancer with the Bampton Traditional Morris Dancers and for many years, from the age of 12 he was a member of the Mummers when they were reformed in 1946. The newly reformed Mummers in 1946 were nearly all young lads who were too young to go into the pubs which did not allow under 18s in at that time. Left to right are Ted Hunt, who was the person who still knew the words, Bill Daniels, Robert Radband, Terry Rouse and Barry Taylor. Phil Addison was the 6th member but sadly is not in this picture. Bill Daniels is seen pushing one of his brothers, Frank Daniels, in the Great Bampton Shirt Race. They are in the parade on the south side of the Market Square. Both Bill and Frank danced with the Bampton Traditional Morris but Frank moved away from Bampton so had far fewer years with Bampton Morris. In 1973 Bampton organised a moustache growing competition at the Eagle Inn in Church View. Proceeds raised benefited Bampton's senior citizens. The judges were Vic Stevens, landlord of The Trout at Tadpole Bridge, Oxford Mail columnist Anthony Wood and Witney Gazette reporter Sue Bowes. First prize of £3.50 and a cup went to Bill Daniels, second prize of £1.50 to Chris Lewis the landlord of The Eagle and third prize, a razor, to Mick Blake.
