    I came across something on youtube about cleaning headstones during my extensive research into the subject...

    This bloke went on about H&S and he had safety boots on, fair enough, goggles, fair enough, a hiviz jacket, why? and a skid lid, why? And before you answer, I is qualified in elf and safety and risk assessments etc wiv initials after my name, as well as 'GSM(NI) Retired', no wonder it has a bad name with people like him taking it to the n'th degree.

    Mine - depending upon the weather, old trackie bottoms and T shirt, disposable gloves, trainers, goggles occasionally, plenty of tea and a fag hanging out the corner of my mouth.

    Japanese safety boots, AKA flip flops, thongs to us antipodeans.
    Spanners do it with their tools.
