J Barnes is probably PC John Barnes Warrant Number 58422; he joined 16/11/1874 as a PC in P Div (Camberwell) and left 31/12/1891; he was then still a PC in P Div. Left under a cloud as his Resignation was Permitted (RP - later this terminology was changed to Required to Resign).

E Andrews 1887 - N Div (Islington). Sorry I can't identify this man - he either left between June 1887 and early 1889 when the discharge registers start or transferred to another division before he left and thereby wiping out our only clue, his the link to N Div.

C Cox is PC Charles Cox Warrant Number 81300; he joined 01/06/1896 as a PC in V Div (Wandsworth) and was pensioned 05/06/1922 as a PC in L Div (Lambeth). He earned an 1897 Jubilee Medal (PC V Div), 1902 Coronation Medal (PC V Div), 1911 Coronation Medal (PC).

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
