What do these men all have in common?

Our photo this week was taken recently, very recently,  when someone suggested that this group gather for a photo because they all have something in common apart from the fact they they have all been, or still are, members of the Bermuda Police Service.  We wondered if you could easily figure it out, but of course, none of those in the photo are allowed to answer the question.  We also wonder if anyone living abroad can recognize everyone in the photo?  We may hold off on publishing comments for a few days to give averyone a chance to respond.   More photos of this gathering can be found in our Photo Gallery.

We look forward to hearing from you.

My point was that if you pull up the ExPo 24th January 2014 photo's et al: they are all named.
Thus my need to not name them.
Look again Mr. Taylor.

A great day to all.
See yah.

ID time again, huh? OK, at a guess:-
From L:- Cal Fox, Gerry Lyons, Brian Robinson, Steve Taylor, Paul Wright, Dave Lunn, Mike Jackman, Gary Venning, Richie Basden, Mark Bothelo, Mike DeSilva and Rex Osborne. Shoulder numbers available on request!

Editors note - I should firstly point out that Davie sent this in before we had posted Phil Taylor's correct answers, and of course Davie is answering from long distance! The only one you got wrong Davie was Mike Jackman. It is, of course, Merve Dickinson.

Ok. Don't scream and call me names but I figured it was concerning MCPS and Cycle Squad.
Anyway...glad Phil got it.
I still remember the first silly boots they gave us in 1971 after we wore out our bloody issue shoes that lasted a month.
Les Pearson was good at wearing out shoes until we showed him that the leaver on the right was front brake and where the foot brake were.

Good times.

Terry hasn't done it so I will and Terry, they are not named in the Photo Gallery.
Cal Fox
Gerry Lyons
Brian Robinson
Steve 'Cyclops' Taylor
Paul Wright
Dave Lunn
Merve Dickinson
Gary Venning
Richard Basden
Mark Bothelho

Editor's note - Well done Phil. 100% correct except the one extra you through in who was not su[posed to be in the photo. The guy who is partianlly obscured behind and to the right of Rex Osborne is Ian MacMillan, and I have to admnit that from the photo it oooks like it could easily my Mike Chlebek, but Mike was not at the reception.

Come on you old bunch of farts.
Hell...as I stated they are all named.

Now what do they have in common.

Well since you have already indentified them all in your photo gallery (and I got one wrong-thought Richard was Ken McDowell there for a second) I am sure there is 'one' thing in common but hard to tell.

Dave Lunn is the key maybe.
Maybe they all live 'hup dee vaest hand'; traffic cops, MBA's, Ph.d's, work as part time bee keepers.

I am sure Roger is up to his old trivia because they sure as hell were not on the same basic training course.
Anyway......I am sure Mr. Kerr already has it solved after consultation.

A great day to all. I have to lay some salt. Another 10"'s of snow coming.

Is the connection that they were all in MCPS and/or Cycle Squad

Editors note - Phil has hit the nail on the head. This photo was taken at our recent cocktail reception at the Officers Mess and it was Brian Robinson who pointed out how many of those present had worked in Cycle Squad and MCPS. It was also Brian who suggested that they all be photographed together, and we thought it a good idea to see who could figure out what they all had in common apart from serving in the BPS.

From down under - left to right top photo - Unknown, Gerry Lyons, Brian Robinson, Steve Taylor, unknown, Dave Lunn.

Bottom picture left to right - Is that Mervin Dickinson?, unknown, unknown, unknown, Commissioner De Silva and Rex Osborne.

Sorry about the unknowns but I did finish up in 1982!

Regards Don Urquhart, Sydney.

Bunch of old retired cops.
Unless of course that is the COP's double.
And I might add that Ken looks good unless I am on drugs.
