Chris wrote: (November 2007): "This photo probably dates back to the last war, My Father is fourth from left, top row and it was Gloucestershire Police, with special constables included, probably all local, my Father being resident in St Briavels. I'm uncertain of any other names, but one may be Edgar Day, possibly front row second from left, who was of course the Father of PC John Day. There is little more I know about it".
Row 3: 1 , 2 Billy Lewis, 3 , 4 Albert James, 5 Alfie Davies..
