FURTHER INFORMATION REQUIRED ON THIS MAN
You have provided a bit more info than I currently have about Henry Chadban, who is my first cousin twice removed!
I have some others in my genealogy who were also reported to be NSW Policemen, though my quick search of your site did not bring them up. I’m wondering if you have come across them?
GALLARD, Alfred – b 1870 – thought to have been in the Police in Broken Hill
McBEATH, Norman – b c1802 – thought to have been in the Police in Mudgee abt 1881
MILLER, Harry Frank Turnbull – b1881 – thought to have been in the Police in Sydney after his stint in the Boer War
I would love to know if you have anything on these men!
Thank you, once again!
