Hobos Morris is a
female border morris side, formed in 1993 and
based in Poole, Dorset.
Our first season, in
1994, coincided with the 50th Anniversary of
D-Day. Major-General Percy Hobart of the 79th
Armoured Division, produced and commanded the
unusual tanks needed for the Normandy beach
landings - affectionately known as Hobos
Funnies! Their regimental colours were red,
black and mustard, and their emblem the Raging
Bull. The name provided us with our colours,
badges and a bit of history. Perfect.
We usually paint our faces as
tigers - for no real reason other than we prefer
it to the traditional black!
