Evening all,

I've been given the call up tomorrow for up to 4 weeks and was just wondering if any of you lot have done it and what to expect etc etc.

Also, I've seen it's a free for all regarding clothing. Any etiquette I should be following?

Wear a very posh suit and brandish a copy of The Times. You will be guaranteed not to be selected.

Here to help

Selected four times would you believe , a lottery I would never win but that , the last time I served was twenty odd years ago.
Strangely , I was going to mention the suit thingy but Al beat me to it. I remember folk being rejected for that reason once. I'd decided to leave my work suit at home that day and was selected!
Been foreman of the jury four times , guess I talk too much!

If on the other hand you want to serve and p*ss off a defence barrister dress scruffy, brandish The Sun and next day wear the posh suit and wave The Times.
