Harmonious Group

We were sure you would know what brought this group together for many years around the Island, always enhancing the good name of the Bermuda Police both at home and abroad.  But we wanted to make sure we can remember the names of all those who participated, so I published the colour photo below and asked if you could name each person, and perhaps tell us when the photograph was taken.

It is, of course the Police Choir and we had no problem identifying everyone in this first photo, thanks to several of our colleagues including Phil Taylor and "Brinky" Tucker.   There was several questions about other members of the choir so we have added two extra photos and would be delighted if you can assist us in naming everyone in the two addtional photos, and maybe providing the year of location when they were taken.  To avoid any confusion we wil lable the first photo "A" and the next two "B" and "C".

Brinky provided us with the following information about Photo "A

Front row, left to right ..Adrian King, Sinclair White, Anthony "Sonny"
Roberts, Reese Bartley, Dai James, Cecil Smith (Director) Willy Bourne,
Michael Phillips, John Harvey, Lenny Edwards.
Middle row. L to R... Dennis Ramsay, Cal Christopher, Norrell Hull, Wayne
Perinchief, Westmore Bean, St. Clair "Brinky" Tucker.
Back Row. L to R... Lyn Hall, U/K, Allan Lister, Hilton Wingood, Leon Bean,
Charles Williams, Howard Dill and U/K.
Picture taken in front of the Hamilton Cathedral. Date u/k.

I hope my assistance helps.

Quoting Davie Kerr:
I certainly don't recall any white Bermudians in the choir, but, as always, I'm open to correction with or without irony...

There were none as far as I can recall.
We just sang in the background.
Shalom.

Quoting Davie Kerr:
The only UK-originating Policemen I remember singing with the choir are Andy Maule, Dai James, John Dale, Brian Foster and Lyndon Lewis: anyone know of any others?

Editors note - Thanks Davie. I was planning to add a few extra photos of the Police Choir to this article but having a few technical problems with my photo album which should soon be corrected.

So, were there any white Bermudians in the choir Davie?
Irony.

Editors note - Surely this was a purely voluntary choir group made up of Bermudians along guys from both the West Indies and the UK. Not sure where the irony is, but I suspect that anyone with a good voice would have been welcomed into the choir - black or white or any other! Thanks to Davie for providing the extra names of some of the guys who were not included in this photo.

Ah: I thought it might have been a misprint for "Hilton".

And who's this "Milton" that Terry never worked with?

Milton Murray Marsh.
Had him confused with Westmore.
Shalom.

I'm actually tempted to take Terry's last posting as a compliment, but I don't want to spoil his 100% record...

Quoting Terry:
Come on Davie.
Give us they shoulder numbers, D.O.B., Car and Bike numbers.
I think the only ones I did not work with per sey were Brinkie, Milton, Dai James, Adrian, Howard Dill and Westmore.
A great day to all

As an addendum to your post about being sarcastic; my post (this one is not).
It's a fact that Davie has extraordinary memory. It was a compliment and not as pointed as you Mr. Editor make it seem.

Quoting Terry:
One thing that will never change Mr. Taylor is your sincere sarcastic flavor.

Maybe I should pull a 'Drano' and request posts be held back and claim I have no clue.
Shalom.

Editors note - Terry. On that subject I presume you read you last post about Davie!


Yes I did. I typed it.
Been great reading this page.
Time for me to leave.
Shalom.
