How many of the original seven were left handed?
daro2096
Just noticed that David Jackson is left handed . Or at least he is holding his gun in his left hand and the holster is on his left. Also I noticed his holster is just tucked into his belt. Did they not have a belt long enough for him?

Anyway that is 3 of the original seven that are/were left handed. Sally Knyvete and Jan Chappel being the other two. Seems to be a lot. Been watching the show for decades and only just noticed.

Not one of the seven, but Tynus (Ronald Lacey) is left handed.

And here's a thing - obviously, it's okay under Federation rule to be left handed. It wasn't always the case IRL - my naturally left-handed grandfather was forced to use his right hand. He ended up sort of ambidextrous, and played the piano very well!

There's no point being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes

I know that feeling, Travisina.

My hubby is left-handed, and I've learned a lot from him about what it's like to be left-handed in a right-handed world (things I'd never even realised, like door handles, rulers and kettles) - but I didn't know lefty kids were still forced to use their right hands.

I have heard of horror stories such as the above. As a left hander myself none of that ever happened to me thankfully. Things like that must have stopped by 1979 when I started school.

According to Paul Darrow (on one of the "Together Again" tapes), David Jackson did have a belt that fit him. Wardrobe tried to get Jan C to wear it in one episode but it went around her three times!
