Taken at rear of the then new police station, Harrogate St. Myself, Jack Wareing (Supt) and Jim Jones. We had just set up the then new idea of Unit Beat System and responsible for trying to make it work. Think it was sometime in 70s.

Hello Charlie. This photo was taken in March 1983. I can remember the date because I actually got 2 hours at rest day rate for attending for the same 'photocall'.

1970's, how old do you think I am Chas. Young Finney's nearer the mark. Good gang we had together, wonder where they all are now.

1983 Jim ? I retired in Sept '83, that's why I thought the photo was taken late '70s. Ah well, memory lapse again !!

Do any of you remember Stuart Cooper who was a Police Cadet early 1960's? I remember you Jack Wareing, I used to work as a Typist in Admin. early 1960's. Happy days.
