Those who appear on the BSA Police Roll of Honour (War) are afforded full military honours in the true sense.
Occupation: Part-time Policeman - joined the BSA Police in ; Reg. No. 8563G; served until April 1979. Charlie was an active participant in the Police Anti Terrorist Unit (PATU).
Honours and Awards: In January 1975 he was the recipient of the Police Reserve Long Service Medal (PRLSM) [1]
Demise: Killed in action - landmine incident while serving as a Field Reservist in Kezi (Operation Tangent).[2] [3].
