Frank "Gruff" Hammond's Retirement Photo
Not surprisingly we have now been able to identify everyone in this photo taken at the time of Frank Hammond’s retirement in 1975. As usual, Davie Kerr, who to the best of our knowledge never worked in CID, was a great help identifying most of those present. Terry Cabral spotted the fact that it was Campbell Simons on the back row between Frank DeAllie and Norrell Hull, while “Moby” Pett picked out Carol Holdipp and Alan Bolton.
George Rose kindly provided the photograph and if you would like a copy we can send it to you by email in a fairly high resolution.
The names are now listed below.
