It's the mother's hand hanging on to the truculent toddler's. Or the truculent husband's. 'You're coming with me whether you like it or not...'
Oh and I'm now looking for a picture of Morris dancers with sheep. It may take a while to find though.

I like the blue tip.
Is that there to distinguish beween the male and the female hooks? Or is it a special bit of Cr Ma oxide on top of the iron oxyde, which marks it as a special late 1920s vintage... but then it wouldn't be UNF.. well a mystery.WinkWink
