‘The Course Of Duty’ – Merton Road, Wimbledon (1755)

Two policemen leaving a kebab takeaway and returning to their van with the evening meal, perhaps mindful of a potential later return in different circumstances. A (post-pub) ritual to be acted out in several hours time up and down the land. The fast food outlet, an inadvertent host for (the) law and disorder, in the (un)holy trinity of excess alcohol, hot food and a plate glass window.
