Gym Knicker Spotting
At age 11 I left the primary school where I had enjoyed the weekly
experience of doing Gym with the Girls wearing their White Vests and Navy
Blue Knickers and moved to Secondary School.The next 2 years were a
disapointment,for gym and sports the girls wore Navy Blue Shorts and White airtex blouses all the time.
So I did not see any Gym Knickers whats so ever,although some of the girls
may have continued to wear their Navy Blues underneath from Primary
School,and as the Uniform was bottle green,perhaps others wore Bottle Green.
Then at the start of year 3 a new Gym Mistress,and Head Teacher arrived,and
for me this was haven.Although the existing girls in the School continued
to wear the Navy Blue shorts,New Girls wore Navy Blue non-pleated wrap
around Gym Skirts,yellow airtex gym blouses,and regulation double back
panel/cuff leg Bottle Green Knickers which also had to be worn with the
Even better the girls were not allowed to wear the skirts in the gym,so it
was yellow Gym blouses and Bottle green knickers.
This is when I started to my Knicker spotting book.
I was fortunate that a number of classrooms I used overlooked the Gym and
the Hall which was also used for Gym.It was wonderful seeing all thoses
girls with their gym blouses tucked into their Knickers stretching and
bending and seeing their large Bottle Green clad bottoms with the legbands
pulled tightly into their thighs,and the ones who did not tuck the blouses
into their Knickers, the thrill of seeing the shape of a rounded Bottle
Green covered bottom and legbands peering out beneath.I also had the thrill
of noting the names of those girls who did not wear the
the proper Knickers.and saw over a period of time,Navy Blue,White,Grey,and
Blue panties.and various shades of non-uniform Green.plus 3 girls who wore
1950 bloomers,but thats another story.
Another source for my book was sports days,when the skirts were
discarded,and looking up Girls skirts as they climbed the stairs between
lessons.This was also interesting to see whether girls wore different
knickers under their skirts than for gym.ie the younger ones tended to
continue to wear their primary School Navy Blues.Another bonus was knowing
where the girls lived,so that you could go past their house on the way to
school,or weekends/Holidays and see their Knickers on the clothes line.or
seeing a pair of Knickers on a line and finding out who they belonged too.
Unfortunately the girls in my class continued to wear their shorts until
they left,so I never found out what they all wore,However
I did see 1 pair of Grey,1 pair of Bottle Green,and 3 pairs of Navy,and
assumed some of them wore the same colour as their younger sisters.
