Ian Oliver has been appointed a BTP History Writer, for his continued hard work on the Police Service Records Project since it’s inception.

His citation reads: “History Group and long-term Committee Member, Ian spent most of his service at Southampton Docks and has a wealth of information on policing the port. In addition, whilst on the committee, Ian managed a project recording, verification and storage of many hundreds of Police Service Records. As a result we have a significant archive to add to our collections.”

Ian was presented with his certificate by BTPHG Chairman Viv Head, in the presence of Mrs Oliver, at the BTPHG AGM in Birmingham.

In an earlier presentation, John Higgins was also made a BTP History Writer. A member of BTPHG, John spent many years serving at Hull Docks until promotion came his way which took him on to Heysham and York. He is man very much aware of history and has put together a veritable catalogue of information, photographs and stories relating to the places he served. Two lever arch files full and more.
