The age old custom of Dwile Flonking (tossing a dishcloth soaked in beer) is demonstrated in Suffolk.
Various shots show the Waveney Valley Dwile Flonkers having a drink outside the Wherry Inn; mostly men, they are dressed in odd yokel clothing. The group make their way to a field where they jump up and down to test the ground before going through the age old ritual of Dwile Flonking.
This involves the group running in a circle around one man who tries to toss (flonk) a dishcloth (dwile) soaked in beer over one of their heads. The man fails which means he has to drink a pot of ale before the dwile is passed along the line of men. More silly business of the same vein; the referee gets sent off. A man falls backwards from his chair, supposedly drunk, at the end of this match between the teams from Beccles and Bungay.
Note: on file are various pieces of correspondence and notes on this custom. Cuts exist - see separate record.
