This is a photograph of me when I was PC 167. It was taken at Saltdean whilst on speed radar duties, by a professional photographer from Rottingdean. I was in the process of reporting him for speeding. Spring 1965.

It's my daddy! It is so nice to see a photo of him in his uniform. This site is brilliant! Keep up the good work!
