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.

    • 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.
