Hi there,

Could you tell me if there is a site/list where I can look up Special Constable, Long Service Medals going back from George V to present day? I am a member of Ancestry.com but nothing seems to come up with the searches.

Cheers,

Alan

During the reign of George V individual forces had their own long service medals. If you know the which force the individual served with then there is a possibility that records may still exist. But I have to say that since the 1960s police forces have been notoriously bad at preserving their histories.

Hi there,

I have listed below the LS SC medals that I have. Is there any way that I could access any of the lists that you have mentioned.

Again I would be glad for any assisstance to get me on the right track.

Cheers,

Alan

Impressive collection..!

I have 4 such medals and because they are so hard to research I rely on finding a unique name to track on Ancestry. - My latest medal is a George V one to Constable Ormonde Stockwell - he is unique on Ancestry and was born in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, UK not far from my home town.

I bought one to Constable Septimus Dixon - sadly this is not a unique name would you believe...so I am trying to narrow dates down to find the exact man.

If you have an idea which force the man served in (Ormonde Stockwell was definitely West Riding Police) you could try contacting the force direct for help.

Best of luck

    • 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.
