WW2 saw Swansea Town extensively bombed by the German Luftwaffe. At this time the Swansea Borough Police were also the Fire Service. The Borough Police requested the assistance of the adjoining Glamorganshire Constabulary. This request resulted in the secondment of Police Officers from 'H' Division of the Glamorgan Constabulary being deployed with Borough Officers in and around the Town of Swansea.
This video is an account of a Glamorgan Constabulary Police Officer involved in policing duties during the 3 nights blitz of Swansea. Peter Hall (April 2019)
