Eric Beany from Leith. Posted 16 Apr 2004.
My uncle used to be a bobby in the 1960s. The highlight of his distinguished career was the capture of a streaker who was rampaging along the high street in the altogether, frightening young and old alike. He and his colleagues had to apprehend the young man, which was difficult enough - firstly, there are no clothes to grab hold of, and secondly, you have to watch where you put your hands...but perhaps the most difficult aspect was trying to maintain an air of professional decorum (ie keep a straight face!). It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it.
