    The Duty Armband

    Between 1830-1968, all uniformed police officers of the lowest and second-lowest ranks Constable and Sergeant in British police forces were required to wear a duty armband. The practice was introduced because at the time officers were expected to wear their uniforms at all times. Wearing the armband indicated that they were indeed "on duty".

    The armband was vertical blue and white, or black and white and later red and white, stripes worn over the left forearm of an officer's tunic. Sergeants also wore one on their right forearm as an extended part of their rank insignia.

    Officers of the rank Inspector and above were not required to wear the duty armband.

    Some Then & Now pictures I made of Bratislava, the city where I live. I thought I would do something interesting during my covid sanity strolls.

    Then

    This is the first and oldest photograph of Bratislava, taken in 1841.

    Now

    The partial destruction of the Old Town after WW2 was disgusting. Such a rich legacy of buildings, lives and culture was totally obliterated.

    No prizes for guessing which dictator is holding the binoculars.

    And, no, war is NEVER a good thing.

    And we are headed towards another.
