Moni Abambo ndi Amayi ~ January 2020
New Year greetings to all our members.
I have now completed a year as Organiser of the Association. On taking over I set two objectives: (a) endeavour to increase contact with and amongst members, from whom I will always be pleased to hear and (b) attempt to maximise attendance at our annual Reunion. These objectives remain ongoing.
As mentioned elsewhere on this website, I own the Police staff lists for the years of 1957, 58, 60 and 62. These, together with the Warrant card photos on the website, show most former colleagues and can provide useful information for those interested.
However, a large part of our establishment, sometimes overlooked, included the civilians such as Desk Officers, Technical Officers, Transport (e.g. Jack Card) and last but not least the Stenographers - of these over 25 are included in the various Staff lists; they included some wives of serving officers but the majority were single!
A temporary increase in the establishment of the force was the secondment of the British Police Unit, some 39 members of which arrived in 1960, including Alan Binney. They were followed later by some further members including Roy Ranson of the Met, who afterwards achieved notoriety as the lead Detective in the Lord Lucan case.
Later this month I will be receiving the agreement from the Holiday Inn, Coventry, of our Reunion on Thursday 9th July. Once this has been settled, details will be sent to those who attended last year as well as being posted on this website.
So, have a good year, stay well and keep in contact.

Musical Interlude
Hogmanay - the Scots word for the last day of the year, synonymous with the celebration of the New Year "in the Scottish manner". So Scottish it has ro be, how about Highland Cathedral?
