The N'bria cadet in the 1973 photo standing between Neil Hobson and Denny Pygal is Keith Armstrong (known as 'Pit Yakka') he is also in the cup winning Rugby team photo.

Fond memories of 1973 spent at Cadet Training Hardwick House - To fill in the gaps stood next to Alan Sinden is Dave Elders Y&NE, next to Ian Hall is me Tim Bright and next to Mike Connolly is Dave Dale.
Dave Dale left the Police in early service and never heard from again, Brian Rogers and Dave Elders and myself completed our full 30 years service and have been retired for the past 7 years or so. If anyone wishes to get in touch my e-mail is tim.bright@btinternet.com
