When we published this photo of 14 police officers we had no idea what had brought them together, but the mystery was finally solved by our “memory man” Davie Kerr, who is positive that it is a photo of a Senior Constables Refresher Course, circa 1974. Davie remembers it because he happened to be on the course but missed being in the photo, probably because of “some sporting event”! Will try to narrow down the date.
