Salty Group

It wasn't too difficult to figure out  these lads worked in Marine Section.  The photo was taken next to the Marine Police Station at Barr's Bay Park about 1973 -1974.  We have listed their names, and Dave Garland, who was the Sergeant in charge of Marine Section at that time,  tells us that Graham Maddocks has been serving in the BC Police at their training centre as an instructor.  The last Dave heard about Les Tomlinson was that he was living in Baildon West Yorks, and  that Peter Swann lives in  Northallerton where he has a business.  Ex Sgt Jimmy Woodword is a relation of Peter’s and also lived in Northallerton.   As for the rest of the crew,  Alax Armfield, Dave Garland, Jerry Ardis and Andy Lavery are all here in Bermuda, while Paul Wakefield lives in the U.S. but visits here quite regularly.

Quoting Terry:
Irony is when this photo was taken only one member really knew anything about things that floated and what a green light/red light meant.
You be the judge.

Addendum:-
Think about it.

Editors note - I do note that Dave Garland built the first ever police boat (see special article under Interesting Articles) and to the best of our knowledge is still giving marine courses, including navigation at the Bermuda College. I guess it's always very easy to knock someone else but this was quite a competent bunch in Marine Section and some were exceptional police officers in every respect.


Was not knocking anyone Roger.
Facts are facts.
Just an opinion.

Editors note - I agree with you Terry that "facts are facts"! But it is just your personal opinion that only one person knew about things that floated. It is NOT a fact.

Early 70's.
Me and Foxy were in Eastern CID when this was taken.
And the rest is history.
Shalom.

Left back row, Alex Arnfield, last on right lower row looks like Roger Brydon but not sure. Middle lower row, is that Dave Garland.

Dave O'

Editors note. Two out of three Dave. Left back row is Alex, and Dave Garland in middle centre, but that is not Roger Brydon.
