Young policemen were thus thrust into armed conflict during the insurgency of the later 1960's and the decade which followed. Those who appear on the BSA Police Roll of Honour (War) are afforded full military honours in the true sense.
Occupation: Policeman - joined the BSA Police in October 1971; Reg. No. 8689; served until March 1977
