Police History Talk

A massive thank you to Dave Hardcastle of The Mobile Police Museum who gave a knowledgeable and hands-on presentation through over 100 years’ worth of Police uniforms and equipment at our monthly History Society meeting last night.

There was a great turn-out of around 30 members and guests in the audience in the Library, who got to handle many of the objects in Dave’s collection.

We must apologise to the members who tried to join us through Zoom last night. Multiple technical issues arose that were as frustrating for us as I’m sure they were for you. Most of them were overcome partway through the meeting, but we have identified various issues that we will get sorted before the next meeting.

May’s meeting will be Alison Harrop with her talk “Lady Mortimer and Edward II: From Skipton to Berkeley Castles”.
