White belly. Fine 2/6d
Kings had a draconian dress code. We were, after all, gentlemen, and had to disport ourselves as such. Edwardian style. A wing collar was rig of the day, and if one was not wearing a waistcoat (I kid you not) or a pullover (a concession to modernity that probably caused some controversy) you had to keep your (black) jacket buttoned. If transgression was spotted by the trusties.....bang went half-a-crown. Which would have bought ten smokes and a cup of tea back then.
If you have to take your car into the city then watch out for the traffic wardens, they are everywhere and they are ruthless as well, i have been caught 2 in Canterbury and it does ruin your day. Wheel clamping is also in operation in the city, so bewhere and don't outlive your parking ticket. Leave your car in one of the park and ride services as seen in my transport pages, it will cost you less in the long run BELIEVE ME
