The second in the Lion Kings and Queens series sees the publication of Tommy Day’s story as told by himself during the first half of the twentieth century. It has been passed to me by Jim Stockley of Stockley Trained Animal Consultants. Jim’s family virtually ran Chipperfield’s Circus during the mid-twentieth century and I am eternally grateful for his wisdom and the wealth of information Jim has recently passed to me. Rather than forming the resource for another research paper I have published it here intact. It was written by Tommy Day (aka Martini Bartlett) – and was first published by World’s Fair as related to one L.Fairest. The footnotes are though my own and are made available subject to strict copyright. I have also corrected some minor spelling mistakes and grammar.
