What an astonishing contrast to your two previous contributions Aubrey!

Aubrey: Don't let your Inspecter see this, your out of uniform son, not to mention a truncheon missing.

We met Terry in 1980, and found out that we knew lots of people in common. A very nice man and terrific host. It was our first holiday abroad, and to find a part of Wigan in a foreign land was great. Happy memories

Comments by DTease, 1st March 2018  
John G I can't imagine where he would keep his truncheon in that outfit.

Comments by John G, 1st March 2018  
DTease: I think they should have considered another police course in undercover work, something just not quite right here,appears to be defects in the undercover operations.

Comments by Aubrey, 1st March 2018  
JohnG and DTease,
Never used a truncheon in 30 years service, kept it concealed.

Comments by DTease, 2nd March 2018  
I must admit Aubrey, I haven't used my truncheon much in the last 30years either. Although, I did use it quite a lot when it was younger.

Comments by Janette, 2nd March 2018  
This bar is also featured under the 'Assorted' heading, under 'Holidays'from the 1970's.

Comments by Ray Smyth, 2nd March 2018  
I cant see their truncheons, but I can see their Bobbys Helmets.

Comments by Veronica, 2nd March 2018  
I wonder if they are wearing socks with their sandals. You could usually tell Brits abroad!

Comments by John G, 2nd March 2018  
Ray Smyth: I must admit Ray they do look impressive, in fact the young lady on Aubreys right looks very amused.

Comments by DTease, 2nd March 2018  
Very important them helmets Ray. After all, if someone managed to get hold of your truncheon you wouldn't want the rascal to batter you round the head with it would you?

Comments by Poet, 2nd March 2018  
Would sausage be on that menu on the right?

Comments by GW., 2nd March 2018  
Are we talking about members of the special branch here?

Comments by DTease, 2nd March 2018  
Lord knows GW I've been called a bit of a "member" on more than one occasion over the years.

Comments by Poet, 3rd March 2018  
Thanks Jeanette for the reference to the other photo. A must see warning for all mad dogs and Englishmen.

Comments by John G, 3rd March 2018  
Yes DTease, but one thing you,GW and myself can say with pride, we have been "proud members"

Comments by Albert., 3rd March 2018  
Quite a while Aubrey since I last met up with you, and the was at a funeral. Over the years you hadn't changed very much, from when we worked together in the very early sixties.

Comments by Aubrey, 3rd March 2018  
Thanks Albert, you would not know Terry, he joined Wigan Borough after you had left.
