I don't think anyone has mentioned Steve Roud's excellent book on these themes yet -

'The Lore of the Playground: The Children's World - Then and Now'

In days of old
When knights were bold
And condoms weren't invented
They'd tie their c*cks
With dirty socks
And babies were thus prevented.

I know it's a bit late for the OP's research and not quite Hull (though sometimes in the same local authority), but my husband was from Beverley. He said that in the 40s when he was in Primary school if you ate an apple in the playground some 'ignorant boys' would ask you to give them the 'cork'. There never was a core when he ate an apple though.
