Sowerbutt's Box

The files former occupants were stamped Never To Be Released, placed in an acid-free archival storage box and driven under close escort some miles from Kew to a tightly-guarded storage facility, designated under the Official Secrets Act of 1989.

Sowerbutt's Archives

The weeders, as a small section of high security-clearance Home Office archivists are known, worked overtime to replace the contents of the unassuming file.

Sowerbutt's File

The original burial form, a foolscap sheet with the printed heading of Poplar Coroner’s Court giving details of the inquest and a cutting from the London Evening Standard reporting the fatal road accident on the East India Dock Road were contained in a water-stained HMSO-issue file, inaccurately marked KV 2/1221C.

Sowerbutt's Accident

The well-furnished suite was more familiar with erudite conversations about high matters of state and the acquisition of KCBs than shrieks of anger over ancient East End road accidents.

Sowerbutt's Finger

A chubby pink finger in a Horse Guards office trembled on its way down the list followed by a spectacular explosion.

Sowerbutt's Burial

The latecomer swept the bowler off his mop of bottle-yellow hair, held it out in silent salute and bowed low as the gravediggers began shovelling the clay soil into the grave.

Sowerbutt's Girls


The boy blushed bright red when a blonde among a nearby group of girls wearing colourful shawls, daring necklines and flouncy skirts winked at him, smiled and raised her eyebrows.
