Generally we do not feature pin-up pictures, though in the past Christine Keeler and the Bellocq ladies have appeared here. We also made an exception for Al Menzies; not because she is the webmaster for SAUK [Scoliosis Association (UK)]; nor because Patrick Lichfield [more formally known as The Earl of Lichfield DL FBIPP FRPS, but we are using his preferred professional name in this context] took the photograph; we just thought it was a great picture! This image, along with fifteen other pin-ups by Patrick may be purchased for a trifling sum as a postcard set from SAUK, entitled 'Getting it Straight', designed to raise scoliosis awareness.
If you visit the web site you will understand the title of the awareness exhibition. The subjects are a mixture of SAUK members plus an eclectic selection of the famous and infamous (very large images up to 1319x1375 pixels that we are unable to control, so our apologies for the resizable windows):  Al Menzies, SAUK trustee, technical author;  Barbara Windsor, actress;  Christopher Weatherley, scoliosis surgeon;  David Rintoul, SAUK patron, actor;  Ewan McGregor, actor;  Graham Gooch, cricketer;  Hannah Richards, SAUK member;  Jane Asher, actress, writer, businesswoman;  Linford Christie, athlete;  Michael Winner, film producer/director;  Peter Roberts, SAUK member, Pilates instructor;  Ronnie Corbett, comedian;  Sarah Cox, Radio One DJ;  Sarah Wallace, SAUK member, fashion & design student;  Siobhan Grey, SAUK member, mother of Aidan, who is in the picture with her; and  Vanessa & Lorena Pessu, SAUK members, students.
