Flash Flanagan was a rough and ready Policeman who worked at Fairfield and Liverpool Police, on General Duties, before his Resignation in February 1982.
Flash was diagnosed with Liver & Kidney cancer one month prior to his passing.  The Cancer was aggressive and quick.  He was in palliative care when he passed.
Lenny was a real ‘old school’ cop, who never took a backward step from anyone.
After Resigning, he took on a pub in Port Douglas, Qld, for a few years after which he was selling real estate at Mossman, Qld, up to at least two years prior to his death.
He was a colourful guy who loved boxing and was very popular with all the new blokes arriving at # 2 Division ( Regent St ).
