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

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.

When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
