The Avro Ashton fleet was clearly «built for purpose», the aircraft performing every single test or trial with minimum fuss and excellent reliability. At least one complete Ashton deserved to have been displayed along with the many other research aircraft that grace the RAF Museum at Cosford today.
Five Ashtons were withdrawn from use between 1959 and mid-1962, beginning with the prototype WB490, which was allocated for cabin pressure test duties at Woodford on September 9, 1959. This short-lived secondary duty came to end on December 21, 1959, when the aircraft was sold to the specialist aircraft scrap company R.J.

Huizinga argues that play can be set aside from ordinary life,

If you are a photographer, you want people to be looking at one thing, and one thing only — the pictures. Content, content, content. Make them big, choose them well and edit HARD.

Among the last commissions completed by the late graphics genius Barney Bubbles (born Colin Fulcher 1942; died by his own hand 1983) was a typically quirky job delivered to one of his host of unusual and sympathetic clients: a tattoo design for Rat Scabies, drummer of UK punk-rockers The Damned.
