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).

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
