This officer is NOT Dave Garland!
The photo below of a policeman in St. George's providing directions to a young lady, was recently posted on the "Old Bermuda, Our Island, Our History" Facebook page, by Wanda Robinson. It was taken in October 1963 and we know from the attached Bermuda News Bureau article that the lovely young lady is Miss Bettilu Semken from Bronxville, New York, who had recently won the title of Miss Westchester in a beauty and personality contest for which she won a trip to Bermuda.
So we know where and when it was taken, and we know the young lady in question, but there has been some speculation that the police officer is our own Dave Garland, but Dave squashed that theory by confirming that it is definitely NOT him. Dave thinks the officer was working in St. George's but it could have been an officer was who assigned to be there for the photo op. and not necessarily someone stationed in St. George's.
We would like to see if anyone can assist us in identifying the police officer in question. Please let us know of you have any ideas as to who it might be.
