"Anchors Aweigh!" at Chelsea College
by Simon at 16:56 28/05/03 (History of RCS Mascotry)
Chelsea College have (or rather had) and Anchor. Again, contact was established with a loose-tongued member of the College who let on that Anchor was plainly on view in the Union Building.
Two members of the RCS Team scouted out the area early one morning and persuaded a cleaner to let them into the Students' Union Office. Anchor was chained to a radiator in there and it was casually inspected by the two while they pretended to pick up their forgotten bag (the pretext for getting into the office).

A few days later the whole team returned and four or five gained entry to the office via the same cleaner! ("Oh, you two again, forgotten another bad have you?"). Anchor was 'uncoupled' from the radiator and taken out past an astonished Security Guard into its waiting getaway transport. This raid was carried out only a month after the Beaver escapade. Anchor was repainted in RCS colours and has been displayed at the RCS UGMs, as has Bruce the Beaver.
