Sylvester Walter ‘Jock’ Winters celebrates his 100th birthday today (10th October 2018). Jock served with BTCP & BTP from 1951 until 1975 at Euston, St Pancras & Camden. He and his family were invited to FHQ to meet with the Chief Constable yesterday.

Course 48 Tadworth 1951

The History Group had managed to locate a photograph of his initial training course in 1951 of which a framed copy was presented to him. It was a great occasion and Ed Thompson and I were delighted to have been invited along to represent the History Group. ‘Jock’ was able to meet a couple of firearms officers and dog handler pictured here. Jock’s son, Andy (also pictured) is a serving BTP officer.
