A young constable sees his mates getting knocked down and beaten during a riot, bricks, bottles and stones flying everywhere. Thousands of violent protesters outnumber the police ten to one...

After a couple of minutes the young copper cracks and runs, ending up cowering in a shop doorway. A figure stands over him and places a reassuring hand on his shoulder.

"Come on son," says the figure "You're mates are still out their holding the line and doing their duty. They're relying on you - don't let them down...don't let yourself down...don't let the force down."

The young copper takes a deep breath..."You're right sarge, I'll be alright now." He stands up and starts to walk back to the line.

The figure says "Well, done lad...oh, and by the way, it's Chief Superintendent, not Sergeant"

"Bloody hell!" say the young copper "I didn't realise I'd run that far back..."

What great memories, Dannyx6, just the sort of thing I try to capture in my Prefab Village books! Although they are fiction, I try to create the sense of that bygone time and how characters feel when they move into a prefab and the closeness formed in the community.
I'd love to know what caused your remembered smell. Thank you for sharing.

We moved into a brand new prefab when I was 4. 1947. I too believe there was a lot of Asbestos in them. Remember everything being (sprayed/painted)  cream. Every door and cupboard door was metal plus the shelves. Kitchen Metal pantry. Metal storage cupboard and work top. Inbuilt tiny fridge. Electric cooker with thick solid hot plates. The walls used to run with condensation. A decent sized lounge room (for the day). A fireplace with two little doors on. Quite a wide hall way leading from front door. Two bedrooms with built in robes again with metal doors. Bathroom  all metal doors and toilet. Seem to remember main doors being wooden.. seem to remember a smell which could have been paint. We only lived there for about 4 months. Years later, maybe about 11 years my aunt had acquired the very same prefab and I could still smell that same paint? Smell.  Have to say how very lasting and we'll made those prefab were.  Brought on the back of trailers and assembled on the spot. How perfect they would be for tsunami ridden countries these days. They could set up factories, produce and locals set up prefab cities in disaster areas thus doing away with tents....going off your subject. I am sure these prefab served the community for over 30 years.
