Seen it before but I like that clip - thanks for posting the link Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images. As it says in the comment below the bloke with the cigarette is Johnny Ross.

Don't know about Harry Head who was also in the "Tour of Champions" who raised money for charity during the war years, but here's pic's of Jim Pike, Leo Newstead and Johnny Ross for anyone who is interested:

I find it amazing that they throw in what most people would wear at a wedding or a funeral

When I first started playing back in the 70's I played in the London insurance league (same one I play in nowadays) and there were loads of players used to wear their suits when playing - I did occasionally if the pub was cold lol. There's a couple of players in the league play in suits now as well.

It's not actually too bad depending and it can actually help you keep a straighter line as your arm movement to the side is more restricted than if you were wearing a loose fitting darts shirt or t-shirt.

Yeah I posted that site before on the old forum, its great! I love seeing the clips and I'm amazed they seem to keep finding new ones, my favourite is the trick shot where he throws the dart into a tube held in a womans mouth!
