What a lovely time we had yesterday on the NARPO bus trip to Worcester. O.k. the coach had issues but the welcome and greetings we all had were so very warm making a very pleasurable start to the day.

It was so nice to catch up with old friends and colleagues, and reminisce with them exchanging funny experiences and anecdotes which was so special and uplifting. Thank you NARPO especially Brian Davies for organising the trip.

Linda Podd. (Pinnington) and I had a great time and the shopping was fab as well.

Good evening Bryon,

My heartfelt thanks to you for your wonderful support in the arrangements and for attending my Dad's, Ernest Sanger's, funeral on Friday. I think that he would have been very content with the way that it all went. I would like to thank Corrine for organising the police outrider so please could you let me have her address?
Very best wishes

Dear Phil,

It was a surprise and a pleasure to receive a birthday card from my friends in the Branch.. The card itself was most interesting and I must thank you for the enclosed voucher which I will use in Waterstones. It was most thoughtful of you.

Please give my thanks to Bryon Tucker who actually sent the card.

Best Wishes,

Hi Phil,
I realized how remiss it has been of me not to give you any feedback on the damn good job you guys are doing.

Sketty hall was a great venue for the above mentioned as the atmosphere, presentation and food were really great. The only other place which was better was the Dylan Thomas Centre which has now closed.

Again much appreciation for all the work you guys do to keep us better informed.

Kindest regards,

Hi Phil,
I am not a member of Swansea NARPO, but a member of Glamorgan NARPO and NRPOA
(Neath Retired Police Officers Assn). I was browsing through your excellent site and was
taken with the photo of Penclawdd Police Station where I lived for eleven years in the 1940/50's when my father was a PC there. I was also able to comment on another photo which showed uniformed officers with chevrons on the bottoms of their sleeves. Someone queried what they were and I was able explain that they were 'Merit Class' class stripes. Officers earned them by virtue of their ability.

I finished up as Ch. Inspt., at Neath, after 33 years, having served, at Neath, Briton Ferry, Barry, Port Talbot and Swansea. During that time I served on the street, C.I.D. and Pros Dept.
Regards,
John Lewis.

Hi Phil,

On behalf of my guests and myself who attended the Christmas Dinner at the Manor Park yesterday, I would like to thank all members of the committee for the work entailed with the organization of the event. We all enjoyed the meal and meeting former work colleagues although once again no luck with the RAFFLE!!! I told the bloke behind the bar after he asked me any luck with the raffle" If I was the only one here I still wouldn't win it" Please convey my appreciation to the committee when you next meet.

I must admit first thing in the morning I didn't feel up to attending having been to the health center to give blood and blood pressure tests, but I was glad I made the effort because of my guests, (could't leave them alone with Emrys) the dinner was excellent not having to wash up the dishes was great as well.

If all goes well and I am still alive I would recommend returning to The Manor Park next year as I thought the meal was great & Hot, the atmosphere although not as many people as previous years was also very nice.

Cheers for now

On this, my 65th Birthday, I received a very nice surprise from Narpo and for which I thank you very much. Today also marks the 42nd Anniversary of my first shift (nights) at Swansea Central. The worry is that I can remember it more vividly than I remember what I was doing this time last week.

Once again thank you very much, and to Brian Tucker, who, I understand, organises these things.

Dear Bryon,

My apologies for the lateness of this response, but I have a medical issue which has been distracting me. Having said that I was cheered up enormously by the arrival of the gift voucher, which was both unexpected and for which I am most grateful.

I shall have to try and suggest this as a good idea to West Mercia NARPO. They are nowhere near as generous.

Perhaps you will convey my thanks to the Committee Members. It is good to know that I have not been forgotten, albeit that I departed in 1978 – such a long time ago!

Once again many thanks.

Kind regards and best wishes

Good luck to all for the future.

Dear Bryon

Would kindly convey to your Chairman, Officers and members of Swansea Narpo my sincere thanks for the warmth of welcome accorded me at Llys Glas last Thursday.  I really enjoyed my afternoon together with a most enjoyable high tea.

My thanks to Swansea Narpo for their generous donation to my Cancer Charity Fund and the member’s contributions to my collections boxes all so much very appreciated Bryon.

Your colleague Conrad Morris was such great support with my transportation and most valued assistance with my luggage, he should be mentioned in despatches.

Fellow members highlighted their wish to hear my second talk, namely. “The Fall of the Berlin Wall” when I was able to enter East Germany to continue my research for the remaining relatives of the late Captain Hartenstein’s family, coupled with the writing of my second book in German.

Please, in due course, inform me of some dates for me to confirm an acceptance suitable to us both.

Many thanks again Bryon with every good wish and continues success for your most active Swansea Branch NARPO

Yours sincerely

DAVID
