Policeman's Helmet

Oh no! A comic poll comment asks why Ollie wears a policeman's cap. This never occurred to me. It's supposed to be a cross between a sea captain's cap and an airline pilot's cap. Here in the UK most of our policemen wear odd shaped helmets, not caps. This reminds me of a famous streaker moment I witnessed as a youngster at Twickenham Rugby Ground back in the 70's. The event finally answered the question why policeman's helmets were this shape. I love the look on the official's face as he strides towards the offender with a coat.

I've never seen my mum's face go so red before or since.
