One the treats of my day job as a photo editor is running into current and former punks in unexpected circumstances. Not too long ago, Jerry Redfern and his partner Karen J. Coates came in to show some amazing work they’re doing in Southeast Asia. Towards the end of the meeting, Jerry mentioned having been an old MRR reader. Small world.
Then, last week, Jerry sent me an email with the photo below.
…while in the bush, there was this kid standing by the side of the road with an Exploited/UKSubs shirt on. He had no idea what it said, but was happy I wanted to take his photo. The Barmy Army is everywhere. Thought you would appreciate it.
UPDATE: Shitworker Rob Coons also spent a little time in Laos and he ran across a similar shirt on his travels. The Barmy Army is everywhere…in Laos anyway.
Rob sez: I tried talking to her but she didn’t understand me at all. I also saw a dress shirt the next day with a patch of the Pushead drawing of the skull that is on the cover of Let’s Start A War. Sadly I did not get a picture of that one.
