Meteropolitan Police - Help Sought

Recommended Posts

A bit of a Forlorn Hope but I  was hoping that a clued up Metropolitan Police Collector Member  of Forum may be able to put a name to this Sergeant. The items were purchased in Bognor Regis. Due to the Lack of WW1  or Coronation Medals I would tentatively say it is probably circa 1910 to 1930 ish (I Stand to be corrected of course)

Here's hoping

Regards

Peter

I think it is later than you indicate

I found 88551 Frederick Little who retired July 1925 as PS 15W (1902 & 1911 Medals)

and 91558 Thomas Egan who retired March 1930 as Station Sergt 15W (1911 Medal)

Sorry I hurriedly looked at the photo of the man and not the helmet plate which is obvious.  These men all retired as W16

It is none of these as they all have Coronation / Jubilee Medals.

So I would guess it is post 1930 which means unfortunately you are looking for someone who is outside my data span - the chap also looks fairly young so possibly newly promoted.

Just my luck but will content myself with thought that the badge was possibly worn by one of the above. Thank you so much for your kind and informative help.
