Hi Greg

Sad to hear about Pat’s passing, he was a great bloke. I first came across him when he was stationed in Lithgow around 1970, I was attached to Bathurst STP and then I was again with him at Wollongong.


John Ernst


I knew Pat when he was a Senior Constable on the Special Traffic Patrol (HWP) at Bathurst in the mid-1960.

Hi Greg

So sorry to hear of Pats passing, I worked with him when he was a senior constable and then a sergeant at Warilla could you give my condolences to his family please as I will not be able to attend his funeral.


Ken Owens


Hi Greg,


Pat Jordan was a good man but unfortunately I will be unable to make the funeral.



Steve Byrnes


Cal, I can’t make it but please pass on my condolences.

Graham King.


Hi Cal,


Wasn’t Pat our Sgt 2/C or Sgt 1/C at Warilla HWP.  Maybe he was replaced by Lionel Benson as Sgt 1/C.

I left there in 1988 and he had already gone, I think he was promoted to Inspector but he didn’t stay at Warilla as an Insp.

My memory may be vague on this though.
