Chris said: “For years I have searched for the railway commuter as I would love to find him for my Reunion book but alas I feel supplying the donkey would be the easy bit!”

The pictures below are of lion tamer Martin Lacey taken at Expo in the early 80s.

Chris added: “Martin is now retired in Germany and his son Martin Lacey junior has carried on.”
