Does anybody remember Daredevil Curly? He used to come to The Council field most Summers and, after climbing a ladder to what seemed an enormous height, dive into a tank of water that had been set alight. As young lads,we all thought this was fantastic.I hear tell that he met his death by doing the same stunt. The other much anticipated Summer event was the Fair. We used to like to lean on the rails of the Waltzer listening to Connie Francis songs. Happy Days!

We have a couple of photocopies from a local paper The Llandudno Circular. The first dated 13/08/1955 has a piece about him coming to the council field on August 15th. "See his death defying dive from 80ft into five feet of water and see his sensational fire dive at evening performance." In the following week's Circular there is a picture of him mid dive. No fire.

Dare Devil Curly was my father - he dived 65 feet into a six foot tank of flames. His last dive was in New Brighton at Whitsun in 1964. He was totally blind following removal of a cerebrol tumour believed to have reoccurred due to the constant impact of the dives.
During his final dive he incurred a fractured scapula and humerus but also hit his head. He died less than 6 months later and on draining the tank months later we found old bicycle frames, planks and bricks in the base. Thought to have been thrown in by vandals. Thank you to the reader from Llandudno for remembering him!
