  1. Gentlemen, GMIC was formed as we were sick and tired of back biting and moaning and the general unpleasantness of the other military forums on the internet. We have made it clear from day one that we do not tolerate political posts. You may find your opinions hilarious and can’t understand why you are being censored. It’s simple. We have rules. If you don’t want to follow them or you can’t be bothered with them then the solution is easy. Leave GMIC and join another forum where they are tolerant of juvenile behaviour. And please don’t take this post as a justification to enter in a long conversation concerning your rights to bitch and moan as long as you want. As I’ve already stated the solution is simple. If you want to carry on posting silly photos leave.
  2. Gentlemen, If you wish to pass onto each other political comic strips please find an appropriate forum. I'm sure there are plenty out there on the internet. This post is now locked.
  3. Brilliant work by all of you. This post is a credit to GMIC
  4. What happens when it gets disbanded as it surely will, when the next government takes charge. Exactly like what happened with SOCA, NCIS and NCS?
  5. Its only been going for 6 years. Hardly long service. If they are counting their job service, give them the job medal.
  6. I was here a couple of years Charing Cross, Agar Street WC2. Built as the Charing Cross Hospital in 1831. Moved to its new site in Hammersmith in the 70's and this site became derelict. Re opened as a nick in the early 90's. A bit of cheat but still!
  7. Gordon, Less than 3 minutes walk from Cable Street is Sidney Street. Scene of the famous siege. Have a Google on Peter the Painter. Winston Churchill was Home Secretary and turned up for the shoot out. Craig
  8. Yes the Flying Squad is a real department whose remit is armed robberies. That badge however has nothing to do with the Police and would appear to be joke civilian key ring. The specials badge I will leave for others to comment on.
  9. 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.
  10. GMIC will not be needing your services thank you. No further advertising here either. Thank you Craig
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. That's a rare group not many police got the silver jubilee medal. And for a PC rare as hens teeth
  14. 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
  15. 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
