Prince Harry in his previous army job . Then the locals found out he was in Glasgow, so for his safety they sent him to Afghanistan.
Thank you. And why not.

Did not J. Gordon Stupart Barbers give them haircuts mounted,
as it were, for the purposes of press photography?

I still get my haircut in there although Gordon retired years ago to Portugal. So I can now proclaim to have a short back and sides by Royal Appointment I'd better keep schtum about it though just incase the prices rocket ::):

Don't suppose anyone would have access to a copy of the Herald photograph of the mounted haircuts at Meadowside ?
