The great thing about conkers, the traditional English game played with horse chestnuts

The great thing about conkers, the traditional English game played with horse chestnuts threaded on string, is that simply anyone can play. And now that the season is in full swing, two newcomers try their hands at the sport, and find it a knockout. Yoko and Jason, two three-year-old chimps, take it in turn to swipe at each other in the West Midlands Safari Park at Bewdley, Worcestershire. The chimps may be better known for their tea-party tricks, but there is no reason why they shouldn t be good at conkers, too. After all, they do live in a game park. October 1973

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this delightful print from October 1973, we witness the joy and excitement of two unlikely players engaging in a traditional English game - conkers. Yoko and Jason, two mischievous three-year-old chimps residing at the West Midlands Safari Park in Bewdley, Worcestershire, take center stage as they try their hands (or rather paws) at this beloved pastime. With horse chestnuts carefully threaded on strings, anyone can partake in the game of conkers. And these curious newcomers prove just that! As autumn paints a picturesque backdrop, Yoko and Jason eagerly take turns swiping at each other's dangling nuts with sheer determination. It seems that even chimpanzees are not immune to the allure of this timeless tradition. While these playful primates may be renowned for their tea-party tricks, it comes as no surprise that they excel at conkers too. After all, living within a game park surely instills a natural inclination for such activities. Their hats perched atop their heads add an extra touch of whimsy to the scene. This snapshot captures not only the innocence and simplicity of childhood games but also showcases how animals can effortlessly embrace our human customs and traditions. So let us revel in this heartwarming moment frozen in time - where nature meets tradition and laughter fills the air.
