New! A couple of years ago I interviewed retired Glamorgan PC Dave Barnett about his investigations into the case of the Murder of Mamie Stewart. Dave was the area constable at Bishopston - one day in the 1960s a local lad called into the station and showed to Dave a skull and rib bone he had found in a cave at Brandy Cove.

As a result Dave made enquiries into the circumstances of how and what were the skeleton remains in the cave at Brandy Cove. In this video Dave outlines the part he played concerning the murder of Mamie Stewart.

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.
