The chap on the right is my sergeant. The chap in the middle is Lloydy. I am to the left of the picture. The scene is the bar at Snow Hill police station after duty. It was not unknown for some of us to drink all night long and resume work the next day without having slept. Sadly - some 25 years later - one or two of our number (not pictured) couldn't shake it off and are still at it.
In many ways the railway has saved me and not least because of its strict drugs and alcohol policy.
Where did the time go ???
I wish I could go back and tell the daft bugger what I know now !
