HIGH VISIBILITY VESTS [BE SEEN]-106997

In the UK the experimental use of high-visibility clothing began in 1964 on the Scottish Region of British Railways. Fluorescent orange jackets, known as "fire-flies", were issued to track workers on the Pollokshields to Eglinton Street electrified section in Glasgow; they were later tried in other areas, such as Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness. I do not know when such clothing was introduced here in Ireland.
