His name was KEANE.
Nobody, and I mean NOBODY has yet to provide a believable explanation as to how someone with three articles in his suitcase – all with the name Keane written on them – could be called The Unknown Man.
Article 1: his tie.
Article 2: his laundry bag.
Article 3: his singlet.
All marked as Keane Keane and Kean(e)
And before someone says he may have come by these articles in a second-hand post-war clothing shop .. I’d suggest the odds of someone finding three items with the same name written on them in such an establishment as a million to one. Two million. A hundred million.
For instance, when you walk into a second-hand clothing shop the first thing you will notice is that the women’s gear is separated from the men’s, then the mens’ shirts are separated from the socks, the socks from the shoes, the shoes from the trousers, the trousers from the singlets, the singlets from the ties, the ties from the jocks, the jocks from the belts, the belts from the braces, the braces from the coats, the coats from the hats, the hats from the waistcoats, the waistcoats from the pullovers, the pullovers from the cardigans … then in a bin of odds and ends you might find a laundry bag.
Picture someone rooting through that lot looking for three items marked with the same name.
Argue me that, just for starters.
