I would be interested in meeting up with members of the Falcon Smokers
Club which met often at lunchtime and during Yak's double economics
period on Friday afternoon. One of us ( not me) had the only key to an
old sports equipment store which was adjacent to the main building. The
store provide a secret and airless smoking lounge and provided both
active and passive smoking for participants. I think Marlboro was the
go at the time despite costing 3/6 compared the going rate of 3/3 for
most other brands. Even then, quality was important.

A further small piece of YAK trivia.
His fame is definitely international. A fellow NSBHS leaver (actually1962), on a visit to China in 1966,
managed to place the ubiquitous YAK logo on the Great Wall - Not sure if it survived the cultural revolutionů.!
