Everything but the socks.

I recently had the good fortune to meet the a retired prison governor, a very nice chap who also had the one of those wonderful Lancashire accents that pinpointed him to the Preston area, originally my part of the world.To illustrate they would pronounce the name Paul as Porl.
I asked him why he chose to go for the prison service and his reply was that in those days the Prison service supplied the entire uniform for free, everything but the socks. Apart from that and he expanded, one met all sorts of interesting and pleasant people.
What better reason to embark on a lifetime career than a free uniform and working with people,one can ‘wear’ the lack of paid-for socks.
On my return I have been busy working on a drawing about working, this is just part of it, more later.
