I recently wrote that my father, before he went into the ministry, was a conjurer and escapologist. He performed before large crowds. Here is a newspaper cutting of about 1954. OBSERVATION: He told me that this act once went wrong. It wasn't all trickery. He was locked in a Royal Mail bag with a volunteer, which was inspected by an official and declared secure, then thrown into a pool. But one volunteer panicked, and he had to punch him inside the bag. You may click on the image to enlarge.
