Greg Callander Hi Herbie. I’m unable to find Vet details for Bruce. Can you give me some details for his Policing Memorial Post please?

Herbert Snell He was one of the first group to go to Vietnam as a training officer. I recall he was a member of the Blue Mountains Vietnam Vets group that used to meet at Springwood. He had a few friends from that group would call and see him at Penrith I was the charge room supervisor and he was working in the cell complex I am also a ex RAN so we had a few discussions about service life. Hope that helps you

LEST WE FORGET

A Warrior’s Farewell

Go now and travel beyond the void
Seek the green column and when you meet
See once more those smiling faces
Hear again laughter and sounds of marching feet

No more the visions of the bloody past
Gone are the nightmares and lingering pain
Soon you will be home at long, long last
United with fallen comrades once again

And when the final roll is called
Another page of history complete
You will rest with brave spirits such as they
In a camp where you will find restful sleep

Go swiftly now and seek your past
Your duty done for all to tell
With pride of who and what you were
And now we bid you a fond farewell

George Mansford – December 2007

Homeward Bound

I saw the shooting star burning so bright
Falling, falling, fading and soon from sight
So distant and yet so near
In its wake, a soldier’s journey so very clear
Duty, sharing, caring, courage and sometimes fear
No longer a mortal in life’s short race
A contented spirit bound for home somewhere in distant space
This fiery trail I saw tonight marks a warrior’s farewell
Leaving behind another legacy of proud deeds to tell

George Mansford © April 2012

The Soldier stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.
Step forward now, Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?’
The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
‘No, Lord, I guess I ain’t.
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can’t always be a saint.
I’ve had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I’ve been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny,
That wasn’t mine to keep…
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear..
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I’ve wept unmanly tears.
I know I don’t deserve a place,
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears
If you’ve a place for me here, Lord,
It needn’t be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don’t, I’ll understand.
There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod.
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgement of his God.
‘Step forward now, you Soldier,
You’ve borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets,
You’ve done your time in Hell.’

Crunulla riot probe highlights cop failures

October 25, 2006 – 2:50PM
A report into the strike force that investigated Sydney’s Cronulla riot and reprisal attacks has highlighted a breakdown in communications among the police involved.

The 33-page report, compiled by former senior officers Ron Sorrenson and Tony Jeffries, was released today by NSW police.

It looks at the management of Strike Force Enoggera, established to investigate the December 11 riot and subsequent retaliatory attacks.

It investigated why Police Commissioner Ken Moroney was not told of the existence of video footage of a man being bashed by a gang of Middle Eastern youths on the night following the riot.

Following the reported oversight, Mr Moroney removed Acting Superintendent Dennis Bray as the head of the strike force.

He was later reinstated under Supt Ken McKay after detectives threatened industrial action.

The report said the “unintentional omission” to advise the commissioner of the video was the most significant breakdown in communications.

“Whilst this omission was not as a result of the actions of any one person or an attempt to deliberately mislead the commissioner, it highlighted a deficiency in the system,” the report said.

Mr Moroney, in a statement accompanying the report, said all its nine recommendations were accepted.

He said a “business case” will be made to the NSW government relating to the capturing and cataloguing of photographic images.

However, he noted the methodology adopted by Strike Force Enoggera was successful, leading to the arrest and charging of 103 offenders51 in relation to the riot and 52 for the revenge attacks.

Strike Force Enoggera was successful in that regard, however we will investigate what technologies are available to enhance our capacity to collate and process large volumes of visual data,” he said.

Mr Moroney also today released a report into a complaint alleging NSW police failed to respond to an assault on Mr Jasen (Jasen) Greeks during Sydney’s Macquarie Field riot.

The police investigation was oversighted by the ombudsman’s office.

Mr Moroney said an apology was sent to Mr Greeks in early September.

Ombudsman Bruce Barbour today said the original internal police investigation into the Greeks matter had been deficient and had “not covered areas that should have been covered”.

“Finally when they (police) went back and looked at the matter again at our urging, they ultimately agreed with our view about the matters,” Mr Barbour told reporters.

I can’t find John in the 1979 or 1989 issues of the Police Stud Books but the registered numbers fall within the dates – as above.

From Peter Gould:

John was former Liverpool (22 Division). In 1973 John was riding home from work on his motorbike when he was involved in a car accident.

John suffered severe head injuries and I vividly recall us driving his wife to visit him at Lidcombe when he was in re-hab. John never recovered from his brain injury.

I also remember John visiting us at the SWOS office.

Prior to the accident John was an extremely fit fella and from memory was previously an Army P.T.I.

From Steve Reeves: His photo in his Boxing gear was displayed in the foyer of the South Sydney Police Boys Club. He is a Vietnam Veteran. A distinguished gentleman who was always immaculately dressed. John was on his way home from work along Elizabeth Drive and when at the intersection of Flowerdale Road a car turned right in front of him. Tragedy. He used to train his children on the grass athletic track alongside Cabramatta Sports Ground. We worked together in the Court Cells at Liverpool. RIP mate.

John was, apparently, a regular visitor to the Redfern Police Academy and Mounted Unit.

219046 CPL John Henry HEAD
31 March 1942 – 10 August 2017
Aged 75 Years
Sadly, John HEAD passed away after a long illness caused by a motorcycle
accident many years ago.   John was a NSW Policeman who joined the Army
because he was to old for National Service and wanted to serve his country
in Vietnam.   Because of his police background, John was a direct enlistment
into RACMP and served in Vietnam from May 1970 till May 1971.   On
completion of his six year engagement, John took his discharge and returned
to the NSW Police Force.   During his Police service, John was involved in an
horrific motor cycle accident which resulted in him having to retire from all
forms of employment.
John was a well respected and well liked member of RACMP and of the
NSW Police Force.   He was and will always be remembered as a top bloke.
