The occasional use of colourful language is not unknown now!!

[Attachment(s) from Chris Pickford included below] 

I've now dug out my earlier article on the "Loyal Youths" and attach a
scanned version, together with the two follow-up letters from the 1983
Ringing World. Belfry language and behaviour was evidently pretty colourful
even in 1686-8, as some of the quotations show!

I've looked at the subscription lists, but - so far as I can see from a
fairly hasty check - there is no record of Ashmole having contributed.
However, the list seems to relate to the original appeal for funds rather
than the "top up" fund mentioned in the 1688 letter.
