Home Office Livery–1967 ??

Westminster

Any body help out with this one ??

We received a query from a Uri Smus from Israel, who has been reviewing articles from a collection of magazines called Classic 999.

This picture appeared in issue 3 (June 2004)

Uri is wanting to know if anybody can shed some light about our vehicles at this particular time and the livery (which apparently was part of a Home Office initiative to make police vehicles more visible) and also asks if anybody has any other photo’s of Austin Westminster's or Jaguar Mk2s in this particular livery.

Was the photo taken at Newton Aycliffe and who is the cadet ??

If anybody has any relevant info then either leave a comment on this article or send an email to durhamnarpo@gmail.com so that we can reply to Uri.

The request for the identity of the Cadet standing next to the 'Westy'. I think it looks like Arthur Wilson, who was a Cadet at that time and finished his service in Northumbria.
