  1. PC S-585 / F-82 Patrick James Mangan - Joined 1910 - Dismissed for Striking 1919 Following my earlier post - I'm adding everything I have discovered, warts and all, about this man who was my maternal grandfather. There are also two other officers mentioned who may be of interest to you - but I've not researched them in any great detail - they are Joseph Schoenfelder and Martin Hayes. Patrick was born in County Mayo, Connaught,Ireland – as per 1911 Census. His date of birth is not verified with any record, but has been documented as follows: 1880 - as per the 1939 Register

He was dismissed as a striker on 1 August 1919, serving in F Division at the time with collar no F-82.

Of course no pension records for
