  • URN 685, I think the officer in the picture is Rod Bottomley.

  • URN 2082. 26 (later 1426) Liz Child was a Sergeant. In 1975 she was Officer In Charge of the Women Police Gloucester until abolition of the separate Women’s Sections in early 1976 when she took a Shift Sergeant post.

  • Trevor Jones is correct re URN2209. The ‘line-up’ comprised of A1 Shift Bamfurlong Motor Patrol Centre. The Sergeant was in fact Ron Wasley, the ‘unknown’ was me, Roger Hill, my crew mate was Chris Brown who was on attachment from Stroud Division, not John Davies.

  • I believe the unknown PC in URN2209 may be Roger HIll.
