I have always been on the slow side at picking up unwritten rules and I will no doubt be slow at ducking boots thrown from Ball's Pond Road (of which I had never heard prior to Diamond mentioning it) when I am next in that area. The last time I was in the area was on 19th September when my parents and I went to Biggin Hill then on the way back got a couple of buses to New Cross Gate, from where we took a London Overground services to Dalston Junction along the former East London Line.

To take this thread back to the subject of cricketer's nicknames, I discovered at Biggin Hill that there was a famed South African World War II RAF fighter pilot who led No. 74 Squadron RAF during the height of the Battle of Britain who was called Adolph 'Sailor' Malan, which explains why on occasions Dawid Malan has been given the nickname of 'Sailor'.
