  • Chris Hines Was a great bloke and great Sgt, firm but fair, can remember vividly him picking up a charge book and slapping probationary constables with it who had inadvertently written with the wrong coloured ink. RIP

  • Steven Davies Cal I remember Sgt Royan (couldn’t bring myself to call him Curly) tearing me a new one about an exhibit and saying he was going to “spiflicate” me. Had to look it up and never heard it used by anybody else. Where on earth did he find those words ….RIP.

  • John Crowley Only man who, whilst playing his beloved squeeze box and singing, could get off a bus, unzip his fly, do his business, do up and return to bus without missing a note. Say hello to your good mate from Adelong and my mate from Cyprus and Moruya, Noel Cogan. Crowls

  • David King Top bloke Mick. Sat in as me during a record of interview while Noel Coggan and I attended to other matters at Adelong. Low and behold many years later we end up at Warilla together. Still don’t know how we didn’t cross paths Ian Ian Borland when you were at Talbingo. RIP dear friend.
