Waist­coats and all that jazz

The Herald - - OPINION -

MEM­O­RIES of a trade­mark waist­coat and That’s it Then! I re­fer not to Gareth South­gate and Eng­land’s World Cup ex­ploits (“The wiz­ard in a waist­coat puts West­min­ster to shame”, The Her­ald, July 13), but to Bernard Stan­ley “Acker” Bilk, MBE, (1929-2014), and his hugely suc­cess­ful trad jazz al­bum with Chris Bar­ber.

Memo to Mr South­gate – add goa­tee and bowler hats to squad for next cam­paign.
