  • ‘For a young man of good family the Brigade of Guards is sometimes a sort of glamorous finishing school where, as an officer, he can spend a few man-about-town years in London before retiring to the lofty life of a country squire. Guards officers do lead glamorous lives in their private clubs and Chelsea flats, but fortunately for the Brigade, most of the officers are anything but dandies…
When he is stationed in London, Archie Fletcher leads a pleasant life with his fellow officers, but it is a life hedged about with restrictions. By unwritten tradition his civilian clothes (‘mufti’ to the rest of the army, but ‘plain clothes’ to the Guards) consist of dark suits, black shoes, a bowler and an impeccably furled umbrella. If he smokes, he must carry his cigarettes in a case. He may carry a parcel but not a baby. He should say ‘telephone’ and ‘in London’, never ‘phone’ or ‘in town.’’ LIFE, 1953.

  • Does the ever happen to you... you have an amazing dream, wake up with no memory of it, then it all comes flooding back to you? Last night I dreamed I met Paul McCartney at a party and the conversation was fun, I can’t recall all of the details but I think we were going to go #surfing and play some #music
