    Background: One of the sideline reaction to the break way from the commonwealth by the Rep. of S Africa is the formation of this strange club, COBC, as you will see it seems centred round the bar but has a strange fascination, the members are by no means all english born types many have africans names, the one thing common to most is a connection with RAF or SAAF. Roll 3 is sound attempt to describe club by one of members, one Carrington. Roll 2 is meant to complete story, but by then things got out of hand and roll 3 see camerman also made a member, this i guess would be best consigned to the basket.
