Police Retirees 1989 - 110th Anniversary


How about this group to challenge your memory?!

This has to be the largest group photo we have ever featured on our website, and we said we would be astounded if we would be able to identify everyone in it. To start with we want to know what was the occasion for this group to get together,  when was it taken and who is in it?  In order to make it a little easier to view on the website we showed you the main photo first, followed by two close-ups.  

With assistance from George Rose and Andy Bermingham and yours truly we have been able to identify most of the people in this photograph, with just a few exceptions.  These are listed below, but we still have a ways to go before saying that we have accounted for everyone.  Please contact us if you think you may be able to assist with those who have not yet been identified.

Who, Where and When

Group 1

Group 2

This is believed to have been taken at the 110th Anniversary of Bermuda Police in 1989.  We know that Commissioner
of Police, Fred Bean, hosted a large group of retirees to a luncheon at the Police Recreation Club on Friday 6th October
that year but this group differs slightly from that event held in October because some people are dressed differently,
and the latter event was attended by Lord Waddington rather than the Deputy Governor.  We hope to clear up
of this anomaly, but in the meantime see if you can assist in identifying those persons who are listed in blue.
