Peter Hall

Peter Hall - In the 1990s I initiated a project where Gendros Primary School Swansea were linked with Timberlane Elementary School, Virginia USA. Both schools learnt about each others cultures and studied both country’s history, culture, government, police and other emergency services.

I took Gendros school to 10 Downing St and Parliament where Prime Minister Thatcher was interviewed by the pupils. She also gave a greeting to the American Pupils. All these events where videod by myself. The still's shown are from video at Downing Street which include Supt Merry Bowden in the background.

After a year of the Cultural Exchange I arranged for Gendros School to link up with Timberlane School USA via a live 1 and a half hour satellite link from HTV Cardiff.

In the still photos taken from video, (above and below) included are myself in HTV studios with Arfon Haines Davies and Randall Killa, Headmaster of Gendros School. A Traffic car in the studio with Pc's Suzan Hughes, Graham Thomas (traffic) Dai Walters (Dog Handler) with Ricky the Police Dog. Arfon Haines Davies and pupil from Gendros. Angharad James presented Ricky the dog with birthday cake because we arranged for it to be the dogs birthday on the day of the live satellite link! - Angharad later joined South Wales Police and last I heard was a Sergeant in Cardiff.

Other photos include Susan Hughes - Graham etc Photo of an American child dressed in Police Uniform and more of Dai Walters and Ricky the Dog.

Halberdiers

Hi Phil,

I have attached the photo I was telling you about. As you'll see there are three halberdiers in the photo: Jake Ellery leading, followed by John Pickard and then myself. The photo would have been taken in 1957/8. Hope it is of some use.

Regards,

Here is a 'Photo Album' of some really old photos donated by Audrey Vincent, widow of former Swansea PC John Vincent.

Audrey nee Price was also a Swansea WPC and joined the same day as 2 others Hazel Huxtable and Betty Dagnell. Having joined, their uniform had not arrived so they attended Initial Training in plain clothes as you will see clearly in the pictures.

Audrey was the daughter of a Swansea Sergeant 130 David Price

Her husband John, joined the Swansea Borough Force on 3rd July 1959 together with a certain Bryon Tucker who appears in the top Training School photo standing with arms folded behind John Vincent - note the Swansea helmets.

Please click here or the below photograph to view the full Album.

I think this photo was taken at Ashleigh road playing fields in the late 1980's.
The team was representing 'H' division, Swansea.
No idea who we were playing but suffice to say they probably didn't like us much!
