I have a funeral to attend this afternoon and another next Monday morning and outside it is cool and cloudy.
I will need to take a coat today and I looked into the wardrobe and tucked away at the back is a coat I bought in London having just arrived back from Aden in December 1962, it is a sheepskin three quarter length coat that cost 50 guineas, that was roughly two weeks pay then.
That coat travelled the country when I watched Blackpool play mostly in the sixties and seventies but I completely forgot I had it as I hadn't worn it for many years, so however out of place it may look I might just wear it for one more Blackpool match perhaps Lincoln in January and a visit to an old air base en route.
Don’t the Red Arrows base themselves near Lincoln?
Ps. I bet you look like John Motson in that coat😮
It does sound very John Motsonesque
bought it in Aden eh - you sure it's sheepskin? i'm guessing camel :)
No Tenty bought in London the day after returning from Aden.
Yes can take pic on phone but I never sent picture instructions please.
Yes Q they are but not where I was thinking of.
