B Shift – Darlington July 1974 (Lyke Wake Walk)

Many Thanks to Arthur Proud for sending a couple of photo’s that might just put a smile on one or two faces……
The 'uniform' picture was taken mid- July 1976 in the week that 'B' shift Darlington, set off on an overnight sponsored 'yomp' of the Lyke Wake Walk to raise funds for the Darlington swimming pool and faclities for the disabled. The second picture was taken about three weeks later when a cheque for over £1,000 was presented to the council - no small amount for the time – a PC’s pay was under £60 a month net in those days. Both pictures courtesy of the Northern Echo.

This was such a pleasant item to come across after all these years. Unfortunately I lost my copies when my father died and his house was cleared. Remember this as if it was yesterday.Still got the scars from the blisters guys!
