We've never seen quite so many of our colleagues gathered together to receive their awards as in this photo.

We know for sure that you know where they are, and why this photo was taken, but can you identity everyone it it, and advise us of the date it was taken?  I should add from the start that having checked through the one-page records in the Police Register it appears that many of these officers received medals in different years and I couldnlt find one year when all received a medal.

CORRECTION TO COMMENT #3This photo reflects the occasion which occurred at 6.0pm on Wednesday, 23 October 1991 at an Honours and Awards Ceremony held by H.E. the Governor and Lady Langley.I was at that time Det/Superintendent and OIC Narcotics where I had been since January 1991 engaged on special investigations.Editors note - Many thanks George. Although this photo is on our website I havn't yet featured it on our fHome Page but will do so this next week.

Actually after reading comments here it would be an easy task to ask Government House to check their records if George has a ball park date.They keep records like everyone else and names are entered of whom walked through the front door. Time consuming? Nothing else to do in this COVID age.Editors note - Have contacted GH previously for information about these old photos and they havn't been able to prpvide the information.

HE in this photo is Maj. Gen. Sir Desmond Langley who served between 1988 - 1992 and who succeeded Sir Richard Posnett. I was DCI at CCID at the time and at GH for the 25 year clasp having arrived in Bermuda in Sept 1965.So that would probably make it the 1990 or 1991 awards I think.I seem to remember there was a backlog of awards to be presented at this time.Editors note - I don't ever recall so many police officers all receiving their LSM and other awards at the same time, so George's mention of there having been a backlog answers the question if why so many police officers in one year, Thanks George.

If you can nail down the period when HE (Richard Posnett?) was in residence, that may help...I'm pretty sure that the service for the Long Service Medal was after 18 years, then a bar after 25 and another one after 30. In my case that would be '82, 89 and '94, and, judging by the fact that there were many people there with less service than me, I'm guessing that would be the '89 awards.
