Sgt Dave Lunn

 

We are deeply saddened to report that our good friend and former colleague, Dave Lunn, passed away earlier today, Tuesday 24th May 2022. 
 
Born in Armagh, Northern Ireland, Dave served in the Stormount Police prior to  joining the Bermuda Police in September 1959.  He served in Western Division, Central Division, Operations (Traffic) and in Western CID,  and was promoted to Sergeant before he resigned in 1968 and  went to work for Conyers, Dill and Pearman Law Firm.  
Dave was a keen and excellent rugby player who played for the Police Rugby team almost from the moment he stepped off the plane!
