Cyril was a short-term boyfriend of Sheila Birtles. He was a friend of her brother and took her out to the pictures one night in June 1961 calling first into Snape's Cafe. As he came across as somewhat gormless, Doreen Lostock took great delight in saying his name in each sentence to embarrass Sheila. As they blagged a free coffee, he also asked for a vanilla slice but in a bag so that he could eat it during the pictures. The final humiliation for Sheila was when he told her to drink her coffee quickly so that they wouldn't miss the cartoon. Doreen smilingly told her to have a lovely time and Sheila muttered an admission that he was better than nothing.
