I'll throw in Vic Hesselle and Bert Royal for starters.

But the later father and son teams would be more active and acrobatic.

You're right Bernard about Vic Hesselle and Bert Royal. King Ben Boothman and Kid Mcoy were also very good as a father and son tag team.

The first I saw where Pallo & Son, always thought JJ was there just to make the numbers up! It was still very much The "Mr TV" show..

Not quite answering the question but I would have liked to have seen Vic and Peter Stewart.

This subject crops up every few years and we usually end up discussing the Wensors ....


Still trying to work out what was going on!

I only saw Alan and Adam Kilby team up the one time at Holbeach. Did Adam not stick around for long?

King Ben and Kid McCoy are another father and son tag team, but disappeared from the scene around 1990 after losing to The Superflys Jimmy Ocean and Rick Kight for the British Tag Team belts.

Now in Personality Parade



British wrestling - great characters but the plot was always a bit of a mystery.
