Here's a change from our usual "Who, Where and When" challenge. We don't mean to tie you down in knots! All of these police-related ties have been worn by members of the Bermuda Police Service, but can you tell us anything about their origin. The 2nd photo provides a close-up of the ties that have small insignia to assist you in read any wording.
One more question. Do you have a tie or ties with a Bermuda Police connection. If so please feel free to send us a photo and explanation of its origin.

Here are clues to two of the ties -
(1) First tie on the left feautures a Staffordshire knot, and the initials HOCPC
(2) Sixth tie from left features a Bishop's mitre
So far we have the second tie (the half eatern cherry) correctly identified along with the 6th tie from the left (C.I.D. Course ties from Bishopgarth) plus the tie on the extreme right which is our regular BPS tie.
The tie on the left is my own Home Office Crime Prevention Centre when I attended a Crime Preventio Curse at Baswich House in Staffordshire.Incidentally, it is said that the Staffordshire knit depicted on the tie can be used to hang three men simultaneously with one rope!
We will move on to the next "Who, Where and When" photo but will give readers a little more time to provide answers before asking the person who provided most of these ties to let us know what they all signify.
We also received an excellent suggestion from Jeff Baker to kindly provide photos and a list of all the Police related mechandise on the sale at the Police Reacreation Club. Will sort it out as soon as possible.
