Photograph taken in May 1893 in the police station yard in Sun Street. It commemorated the retirement of a senior officer, SDI Henry Holland but included many of the officers in service at the station at that time. A bearded Henry Dobson PC515N is in the back row fourth from the right.
Sufficient to say that Bryn has a love of history and to a degree
Genealogy - at least there is an understanding about the desire for
people to investigate their past and perhaps some will find
information here that assists in their own family history researches
–but virtually nothing about Elliott genealogy.
Bryn was born over six decades ago and therefore enjoyed witnessing some of modern history unfolding. Although born into a Royal Air Force family he chose a different path and the result of all his web sites is therefore a mix involving a love of aviation and policing, largely unique and relatively modern.A few years in industry and central government were followed by over 30 years in the Metropolitan Police and further decades in writing, publishing, museums and street markets. What you will find here is the feedback from a collector of information not artefacts. The visitor will need to view the artefacts already donated to deserving museums at North Weald Airfield [aviation] and Epping Forest District [as the Waltham Abbey Police Historical Collection]. They have usually been copied and recorded. Within these pages you will find words and images from those museum collections but they may be in store.Back to the present. Bryn is the local market manager for Waltham Abbey and a Trustee for The North Weald Airfield Museum. He is also the Proprietor of PAR (Police Aviation Research, Editor of PAN (Police Aviation News) and President of Pavcon (Police Aviation Conference). Bryn, along with his team also produce the yearly Police Aviation Conference held in different locations within Europe.
