Why this Gathering?

We said the poeple in this photo all has something  in common – apart from being police officers, and asked of you could tell us who is in the group, where and when  this photo was  taken, and what was the reason for them being together.  Phil Taylor, who is featured in the photo,  was able to let us know that it's a photo of the Central Parishes team along with their senior officers, and was taken circa 1980 outside the PRC at Prospect.

Phil says, "I believe it was for the sake of having a photo of a 'motley crew' "!  He was able to identift everyone with no problem and they are listed below.

Central Parishes Team and Senior Officers - circa 1980
Top row (l-r) -  Ron Beech, Ken McDowell, Phil Taylor, Wilbert McLean, Richard "Rocky" Ironmonger
Front row -  Robert "Bob" Anthony, Chief Inspector Alan "Harry" Lister, Supt Harold Moniz, Sgt Campbell Simons, and WPC Barbara Clarke

Quoting Davie Kerr:
Pretty sure you're right about Harry being OiC Central at that time, as it would be soon after the now famous Story of the Saga of the Rubber-Soled Shoes!

Well Harry has three pips on his shoulders so he must have been "OIC' of Central.


Don't know what or whom is in charge now.

Good ole days it was the Watch Sergeant.

Rum all around.

Quoting Phil Taylor:
Terry is miles away from being correct!

This was a picture of Central Parishes at the PRC Prospect and I believe it was for the sake of having a photo of a motley crew.

Back left, Ron Beech, Ken McDowall, Phil Taylor, Wilburt McClean, Richard "You Can Call Me Rocky" Ironmonger.
Front left, Robert Audley Augustine "Bob" Anthony, Alan "Happy Harry" Lister, "H", Campbell "Blackie" Simons and Barbara "The Sparrow" Clarke!

Editors note - I believe this case is cracked! It was indeed a photo of the Central Division parish constables, along with their Sergeant Campbell Simons, and would Inspector Harry Lister have been OIC Central at that time?

Thanks Phil.
Always knew where I stood with you :-*

I understand that Mr. Editor.
Maybe it was an after promotion photo.
Been gone too long but I don't remember Mr. Beech being promoted nor Ken.

It's all good.

:D
Looks like Ron Beech, Ken McDowall (forget) Wilber McLean (forget)
Barry Walkes Harry Lister, "H", Campbell, and Damn I forget.

Well it's definitely at the PRC Prospect and I can't remember
Must have been Davie Kerr's transfer to Western......…

Editors note - Good start Terry. You have most of their names but not the reason for their get together for this photo.
