But­ton it up

Let's Talk - - Postbag -

Ref­er­ence Neil Haver­son’s Last Word and his for­mer col­league’s shirt but­ton prob­lem.

I buy shirts from Charles Tyr­whitt of Jermyn Street, Lon­don. They are good qual­ity and rea­son­ably priced, es­pe­cially the sale of­fers.

I last had shirts from them in April this year and when I com­pared the size of the but­tons with a white po­lice shirt with which I was is­sued more than 50 years ago, I found they were, if any­thing, very slightly larger.

I know the po­lice shirt is 50 years old as it is one of three I was is­sued with in De­cem­ber 1967 prior to pro­mo­tion to in­spec­tor upon amal­ga­ma­tion of Nor­wich City and Yar­mouth Bor­ough with my force, Nor­folk County, on Jan­uary 1, 1968.
