Who are the faces from West Midlands – Range Rover Course


An email came through to Alan Watson asking for information with regards to the above photo and in particular if anybody has contact with Jim Wilson :

“Hi Alan,

Back in the Peeler some time ago there was an piece written by Jim Wilson who left Durham and joined The West Midlands.  He mentioned about being posted to The Midland Links Motorway Police Group.  Back in 73/74 on the local amalgamations I went onto The Mid Links from Sutton Coldfield Traffic. I have attached a photograph that was taken during this time when we attended a Range Rover course at Lode Lane , Solihull.

I am 3rd from the right (what a smart young looking lad)

Also we had an Insp. from Durham who also transferred with the Durham lads and I think his name was Harry Ashworth. 
If at all possible can you forward on the attached picture to Jim Wilson he may know a few of the faces.

Regards - Tony Stainthorpe.”

If you can help out with any names etc please leave a comment or email us at
