  1. come on guys the link is there you just need to research. In Beddington he would have walked past the River Wandle , that joins the Fleet that ran parallel to the River Lea ( Almost ) and naughty jack probably washed his blood stained hands there! So there you go a genuine Ripper medal from H division awarded to X and soon to be Z.
  2. They didn't mess around with shoplifters in those days did they.
  3. More Challenge Coins

    GMIC will not be needing your services thank you. No further advertising here either. Thank you Craig
  4. Allowed to resign is basically a guilty verdict but the important point is you are allowed to keep your pension up to the date of resignation. You don't get it at what would have been your 30 years of service but you get it at pensionable age. Most discipline now is a straight sacking so they don't have to pay the pension even if you've been paying in for 29 years.
  5. I think with the new conditions of service and graduate entries coming into Supt rank etc the chances of anyone completing even 20 years of service will be hard enough let alone 40!
  6. Don't forget this Special when it comes to infamous old bill
  7. That's a rare group not many police got the silver jubilee medal. And for a PC rare as hens teeth
  8. For the attention of the members of the British and Colonial Police forum, it is with a heavy heart that I have to pass on the very sad news of the passing of our friend and Senior moderator Mr Mervyn Mitton. Following service as a PC in the East end of London Mervyn became one of the leading lights in the Police collecting world and I'm sure most collectors have a copy of his " The Policemans Lot ". I'm sure you will join me in sending our thoughts and condolences to his family and friends. RIP Mervyn Craig
  9. DDR Enamel sign

    Ive seen those Border DDR signs and thought they were too good to be true. I think yours has the right patina Jock and would be very happy with it. Craig
  10. DDR Enamel sign

    That is ace. Have just started a small DDR collection would love a piece like that. Craig
  11. Have you spoken to the officer? If they are not aware of the criteria required they may wish to hand it back until they have the time in.
  12. BJOW, I know that when the Golden and Diamond Jubilee medals were issued Army service was counted towards 5 years service in a crown service. However no way does military service count towards the PLSGC medal nor any other Crown service be it military. ambulance, fire service whatever. It is for 20 years ( 22 for some of us ) exemplary service in the Police. If you've got someone wearing one with 10 years service or below parading with someone with 19 years who hasn't thats just wrong. If the federation can't be bothered or your Civy Branch. I would speak to your local PCC. You never know they maybe an ex ranking Police officer and not some career politician and they may be annoyed that those that don't meet the criteria are getting medals they aren't entitled too.
