Linda, your Dad and I worked together for many years at Pemberton.Both he and I started the Charge office on the amalgamation in Harrogate St Station and only left it when we both got promoted. He to Inspector and I to Sgt. I have many happy memories of us working together. I remember your mum and also you as a little girl and young woman.

I'm the other Alexander Lyons(Charlie's son)who joined the police too. I can't believe I came across this photo of my uncle! Our family seem to lose touch after dad died and I had no way of getting in touch. Let me know if you want to catch up. email as above. I recognised him; I have a photo of him on points duty with white sleeves.

Hi Alex long time no see! I think it would have been slightly different in the Strathclyde Police compared to the little Pem nick in the 1950's :)..I've sent you an email x
