Found this little snippet tucked away in the back of the Mail in some bloke called Charles Sale's column: The sporting event which attracted the biggest crowd of the weekend - more than 50,000 - didn't even warrant a mention in the rugby union fixture lists. But the Navy's first victory over the Army for nine years at Twickenham still required a larger police presence - both Met and military - than any other match in the calendar. This is due to residents' concerns about the serious potential for drink-related trouble, such is the massive booze-fest in local pubs before and after the armed forces showdown. So is the reason that they shut up shop early evening? Never known the reasons for it, I just assumed that all the bar staff were knackered!
