  • In the photo where female cadets have won the Erskine Trophy. The third cadet from the left is Donna Ede.

  • Cadets in Spain. I believe the first person listed as unknown to the right of John Creed is Cadet Francis Johnson. Phil Chowdry is actually Phil Cowdrey and the unknown person next to him I believe is PC John Fidler. The person labelled Steve Harris is actually Steve Taylor. Mick Owen was known as Mike Owen.

    The names are as follows:

    Rear: Rob Coltman, Jon Parnell, Robin Yates, Richard Stallabrass, Steve Robertson, Paul Adams, Martyn Speke, John Minter, Richard Bradley & Simon Bailey.

    Middle: Anne Brothers, Steve Parker, Kevin Voss, Trevor Jones, Graham Rees, Gerry Blythe, John Punter, Colin Heselton, Paul Tibbles, Rob Lephard, Ian Perry, Bill Watson & Sarah Tavender.

    Sitting: Rose Petheram, Glynis Jacka, Carole Blyth, PC Dave Hanks, CI Ken Roberts, PS David Price, WPC Di Gibbs, Judy Berry & Lesley Stoneman.
