\\\I'll bet its somewhere near a pub !!!!
A lovely pic Linda. I think you were at Ince Central with me....we're on the same photo under the schools section,taken in the old school yard, but it is a mix of two classes, and you went up the school a year in front of me, and you were friends with Kath Molloy who is a friend of mine now,( although oddly I didn't know her then, despite living near to her.)Hope you are keeping well.
Back row fourth from right looks like Maurice Heyes
Recognised Alec Lyons immediately I served with him long enough and also the bloke second from the right looking at the picture and knelt down on front row is Jim Ashurst Both ended up as Inspectors and both are deceased.I don't think that other one is Maurice Heyes.
So, Sgt O'Leary, do you think this Photo is all Wigan police offiers? because seeing as I have no one else to ask now, you are my only hope! xx
Linda, forgive me for not replying sooner but since Annie my wife died my days are full looking after myself. The photo is NOT of all Wigan Borough members. There are only two, your Dad and Jim Ashurst. Maurice Heyes is not on it. I assume that it was taken ast some course and I'm pretty sure that there are a lot of County lads on it. One I recognise, can't remember his name, but he was Irish and served in Ince. Hed's the very left hand one next door to Alex
Thank you for that information Charlie :)Please look after yourself well!
Although it was a long time ago, lovely to see a comment from CHARLIE AUTOBRITE (COL)
