Hereford Constabulary

A couple of rare pictures from the days of the "Hereford Constabulary" kindly donated to us by

"Pam & Glyn Harris" who's Grandfather PC Albert Harris was a member at that time. The top picture is of their Grandfather, PC Albert Harris and a colleague outside the police station in Goal Street on their police horses. Their Grandfather is the one on the left of the picture. I am unable to name his colleague. Police in those days were also attached to the local fire brigade and their grandfather was there when the Market Hall went on fire in the early part of the last century and also attended the terrible fire at the Kemble Theatre in Broad Street when a number of children lost their lives and others were seriously hurt. One of the children injured was his own daughter.
The bottom pic is of the "Hereford City Police Force" in 1922, and their names.
