    Background: At the University of Cambridge they're counting the proceeds after the annual poppy day rag -- by which it was hoped to raise more than nine-thousand pounds.

    And, as always, the undergraduates were lavish in their efforts to bring in the money. They produced floats of all descriptions -- ranging from an elaborate illustration of the "mysterious East", to a new twist -- a large hangover with a man.

    Not forgetting the dancing girls.

    And, of course, there was a hula-hoop...

    In a "battle" on the Cam -- said to be a duel over fishing rights -- some were sunk, but nobody minded -- it was all in a good cause.
