I believe I worked with Eddie Doran in 1978, at Sutherland Police Station.
I was in my probation, he was a Senior Constable, living in Helensburgh at that time.
I remember him as a “real country copper”, a good bloke who was steady, thorough and unexcitable.
A likeable guy, possessed of the type of methodical work ethic that was a feature of “country coppers” at that time.
Peter Wallace Eddie Doran was one of the first coppers I ever worked with.
I can still see him perched up on the stool next to the old switch at Sutherland in the temporary public entrance during renovations.
One day, me and Col Graham did a snake job at Woronora River, brought the dead snake back to the station, and put it in the mail bag. Eddie was in the station, emptied the mail bag on the counter, and out came the snake. Eddie took off backpedaling and stuttering across the station. We were lucky we didn’t cause him to leave us that day.
Rest in peace Eddie.
