Caught On Camera!

   In ‘Many Happy Returns,’ No.6 obtained a fisherman’s Guernsey. He had no Guernsey of his own; there was no Guernsey he could have borrowed. So when acquiring one he put it on and went about the construction of his sea-going raft. A fisherman’s Guernsey is a hardwearing, hand knitted, woollen jumper which has been worn by fishermen around the coast of Britain for many years. A tough weatherproof garment, usually navy blue, its purpose was more than just to keep the fishermen warm and dry, as in a fishing accident the owner could be traced by the specific knitted pattern.

  The only question is, from where did No.6 obtain that Guernsey?

Be seeing you
