FLORENCE TRAVEL WRITING Photo Gallery
In the week, we would wear our blues uniform, unless we were sailing or doing seamanship. Our working gear was blue shirts and trousers, with woollen jerseys and oilskins and we all carried clasp-knives with folding marlin spikes – some of us also had slim-bladed Green River knives in soft leather sheaves. As regards our civvies, we were not creatures of fashion. We all had multifarious shirts and trousers and jackets that were adaptable for going down the pub, getting into a club, or kicking a ball around the Hoe. Most of us had a serviceable suit for looking smart on a Saturday night.
