Transalpino Operation Julie – Navy
In April 1976, a selection of 28 undercover drug squad officers from 10 police forces were chosen and sent to Devizes in Wiltshire where they were trained to go undercover as hippies in Wales, the first name of one of these surveillance officers, Police Sergeant Julie Taylor, was used as the operation’s code name. On 26 March 1977, after 13 months of surveillance, Operation Julie officers swooped on 87 homes in England and Wales. The gang leaders were caught and a total of 120 suspects were arrested. The huge media attention on subsequent trails and jail sentences received, went on to be the inspiration for the 1978 single ‘Julie’s been working for the drug squad’ on The Clash’s second studio album ‘Give ‘Em Enough Rope’. So having enjoyed a trip or two ourselves, we thought this might just make a great tee featuring one of the undercover officers in his adi Zurich, which just happens to be where LSD was discovered by Albert Hofmann in 1938.
