    Yes, it's shocking the attitudes towards women among the police, and in wider society, back then. There's been a thing going around Twitter recently about how people say "Divorce didn't happen so much in the good old days" pointing out that it was almost impossible for a married woman to open a bank account in her own name before 1975. And AIUI a single woman usually had to have a bloke such as a father to act as guarantor before they could do so in those days. I assume famous women of the 1960s like, I dunno, Twiggy for example had to have their fathers or managers as co-signatories on their bank accounts despite being well rich on their own account
    Before 1969 divorces had to go to the RCJ on the strand.

        WTF is this subplot about the red box.
        well, i wasn't alive in 1949.
        and it's entertaining me very well, thanks.
        when did all this all pervasive misery and negativity descend on this forum?

          Pity they missed the bit about the 10 bob notes.

          Odd how everyone hates the revenuers.

          "They" blew up the SS Politician to make sure no more of the whisky could be recovered.

                  Much combustion was made in the firepit today. Visitors were outdoors and kept warm and/or smoked. Visited Ye Olde Motorcycle Workshop to find that one of the friends has the Big C.

                    Very nice as always

                    Though my tongue is reminding me why I don't often order the beef in black pepper sauce

                    And I took a long way there, so the green ring was closed too

                    At one point I took a detour through an area where there's a road of between-war semis, many of them now with Christmas lights and/or trees in their windows. I was just thinking how different in character it is to the terraced streets round my way, when I passed a police car parked at the curb and, looking up the drive at the next house, saw a policewoman coming out the front door with what appeared to be equipment from a cannabis farm. So not that different after all
