Welsh Police PLSGC Medals? Help Required


Recommended Posts

G'day All,

I have two PLSGC medals which I suspect are from Welsh Police forces. I'm wondering if someone can help point me in the right direction and confirm if my suspicions are correct.

The first is a PLSGC (GVI obverse)/Defence Medal pair to PC Alfred G. MEDLEY.

The second is PLSGC(GVI obverse) medal to Inspector Richard J.A. DYMOND.

My suspicions are based on some preliminary research through the usual genealogical sites.

For Medley I have the following:

• 1911 Census lists an Arthur George Medley aged 7 of Llanelly, Carmarthenshire. There are no other Arthur G Medleys listed.

• Alfred George Medley, Birth June 1904, Pontypridd Vol 11a, pg 616 (source Free BMD).

• Marriages Sep 1929: Alfred G. MEDLEY married Marjorie BOWEN, Llanelly Vol 11a, pg 2527(source Free BMD).

• Possible son Maxwell Medley, Born Llanelly June 1931, mother BOWEN. Vol 11a, pg 1659 (source Free BMD).

And for DYMOND:

• Richard John A DYMOND

• Birth March 1906 Liskeard (source Free BMD).

• Married September 1936 to Ida M. Boulton at Pontypridd (source Free BMD).

• Father? Richard John S DYMOND born September 1880 at liskeard (source Free BMD).

I have had these for a few years and would love to be able to get some confirmation.

Thanks

Chris

I looked in the 1951 Police Almanac and went through all the Welsh forces. Unfrotunately most don't show the Inspectors (no chance at all with a PC I'm afraid).

However the Glamorganshire force does give a reasonable breakdown (and is relevant for Pontypridd) but could not find an Insp Dymond listed.

In slower time I will go through the whole thing looking if he appears in another force but unfortunately not all inspectors are shown. Easier to find Supts and some Ch Insps.

Thanks Odin,

I've been wanting to make an enquiry with the Dyfed-Powys Police Museum, however the museum website indicates it has been closed to the public and research for a at least a year. Thanks for the effort Odin.

Chris, did you ever get to the bottom of this?

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
