Rod - we don't seem to have heard from you since August - hope everything is OK - any new additions ?

Chris welcome to the Forum - we must look forward to hearing some details about your service - presumably in the Qld. Police ?

Hi Mervyn,

Thanks for the welcome, I'm a current serving member of the Queensland Police. I am a Senior Constable and an Officer in Charge of a little 2 man station. I was lucky enough to deploy with the UN Police to Timor Leste in 2007, I posted my medal group in the "post your own" topic in the lounge a while back . Out of interest, my avatar is of one of the old station badges used between 1911 and 1959 to identify police stations. They were cast iron and weighed 17 pounds. I am a collector of police medals, with an interests to those awarded to Australian Police officers (although any commonwealth police medals are also fair game!).

Cheers

Chris

Rod - how very good to hear from you again after the gap. I must be honest and say we were worried that you may have been taken

ill ?

We are delighted to have you back and Brian and I will look forward to seeing more of your collection - as I said once before -

a light on Police collecting in Australia. Best wishes Mervyn

Hello Rod.

I saw your post on the New Content list and started with post #1 and enjoyed a nostalgic review of your room from years back.

An enjoyable tour with my morning coffee.

I see that Mervyn has read my mind once again so I'll simply echo his statment in welcoming you back and looking forward to seeing more of your collection

Regards

Brian

Rod - I deleted the first post that didn't show. Your others seem to have come out well - so everything must be OK ?

Your latest helmets and badges are really of a very high quality - and at their age, must be rare. I am sure members will

enjoy seeing them. Do you still find any of these in shops - or is it that people know you are a top collector ? Mervyn
