My aunt learnt to drive in the 1970s and quite soon after passing her test took her friends down to the town. One of the friends was amazed when my aunt reversed the car into a parking space. Apparently she did not do reversing, and if it was ever required, her husband did it!

One of our other family stories must date from about 1962 when my father had built himself a small boat. At the weekend we would tow it down to a nearby lake which was at the end of a narrow single track road. One time we met a tractor coming the other way, whereupon my father leant out of the car window and shouted out, "I can't reverse. I've got a trailer". The tractor driver replied, "Well I've got two trailers so you'll have to". I don't remember how long it took him to get out of that mess but later at home he practiced reversing my toy tractor and trailer through an obstacle course laid out on the dining room table until he knew how to do it properly.
