Dial that no and Inspector Lockhart will arrive at high speed in the Wolsely 6/90 with the bell on the front bumper. So much nicer than the nasty modern sirens.

  I once saw (a long time ago) an episode of Fabian of the Yard in Canada. You've guessed it - the bell was there on the Wolseley, but a siren was wailing!

  And what of ABBey 1234? How much easier it was to remember phone numbers in those days.

Sorry, lost me entirely there! "Public Address"? What's that mean? Loudspeakers on the streets? Give over. BY.
