Windy Wallets

Hi Everyone!

Words from Silly Old Sod blog Mutton Shunter

Mutton and Lamb

So why were policemen called Mutton Shunters?


Apparently, there was a lot of prostitution going on. Move Along Now especially in Victorian London and because many of the ladies were hardly youngsters, they were known as Mutton. The old saying, Mutton dressed as Lamb, meaning an older person trying to make themselves look a lot younger. The police were forever moving on the ladies of the night, hence ‘shunting’ and so they became known as Mutton Shunters!
