Tales from the nick, "Rosie's Knickers"







In the early publications of the Margate Historical Society a regular contributor was S.G.Reed who's "tales from the nick" was popular amongst the membership. Based around the 1950's they were true stories of the life of a Margate Policeman mostly from the period when the Police Station was in the old market place where the Margate Museum is today.
This story was published in January 2002 volume 5 number 1 when the circulation of the magazine was about 250 copies.I have the permission of the Historical Society to reproduce stories for downloading and there is no copyright. If you like this story let me know and I will reproduce more from this series.

A lovely tale and thanks for posting it, Tony. The sartorial diifferences between US citizens and ourselves has all but disappeared now but it is interesting to see it mentioned.
