A week just like any other week.
Today the army was out recruiting on Church Street in Liverpool. They had a table in front of a van, with various small arms on display.
This was under a gazebo which read Royal Irish Regiment and ‘Relish your inner warrior‘.
On the other side of the pedestrian street was a rough sleeper with his begging bowl, and a cardboard sign which read Ex Solider followed by his service number.
One does not need to comment upon this.
Both the same display and rough sleeper were to be seen again today.
The Army recruiters have gone, but the Rough Sleeping Ex Solder is still there.
