Bureau of Visual Records

   It’s just like being back at school for the Prisoner. As Captain of the school boxing team at Patrick McGoohan‘s old school of Ratcliffe College he would have worn a piped blazer. In fact the one-time archivist at the school joked “I think he wore his old Ratcliffe blazer in the series.” Mind you that’s not a Ratcliffe straw boater he’s wearing outside the hospital, it has a simple black band. The Prisoner does wear another boater in ‘Once Upon A Time,’ which has a more elaborate band with vertical stripes. It was once questioned if that boater was a Ratcliffe straw boater. But no-one could be sure, and even if it is, it cannot be proven.

Be seeing you
