It's a hard life pounding the beat in these narrow streets, you don't know who you'll meet. Jack the Ripper is around here somewhere, we need to catch him quickly.
The Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group were one of the special guests at the Carew Airfield Control Towers open day in Pembroke, on Saturday, and what brilliant time we had.
You can take a trip back in time and experience the Control Tower as it would have been during the war years. Besides, they have also reconstructed a Stanton Air Raid Shelter and have now collected a considerable range of wartime exhibits in their vast museum.
Over 30 army vehicles were on display, and you can watch them drive on a specially designed track with excellent vantage points for the photographers.
There was plenty to see and do with local trader stands, listen to a band and choir or have fun at the fun fair. In their marquee was tea, coffee, and homemade cakes and sandwiches.
We were there with our new mobile Victorian Jail which was a big success with the kids; they could go inside and try on the dreaded Victorian handcuffs and wear a police hat for a unique photo shoot with our policemen, our free lollipops went down well as well.
A well-organized event, we will be there on their big day on the 11th August for the 'Wings Over Carew' show a must-see event.
Sergeant Paul William Harris of the Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group Swansea won the category for the best dressed individual award at the Gloucester City Goes Retro event on Saturday.
The judges were the cast of the famous BBC sitcom 'Allo Allo' including Herr Otto Flick (Richard Gibson), Yvette Carte-Blanche (Vicki Michelle), Lieutenant Hubert Gruber ( Guy Siner) and Private Helga Geerhart (Kim Hartman.
Lieutenant Gruber said when he announced SGT Harris as the winner that the attention to detail in the uniform just amazing.
Sgt Harris said: " There were dozens of re-enactors vying for these coveted trophies and all were brilliant. I was overcome with emotion when Lieutenant Gruber looked at me and said I had won. He presented me with a beautiful beveled glass trophy for the best-dressed individual. The crowd clapped and cheered in approval of the cast's decision. I thanked all the cast members, Councillor Colin Organ, organizer of the event for Gloucester City Council, who had invited me to the city for the occation, I thank the Mayor and High Sheriff of Gloucester City as well who were present on stage."

Another great event for the Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group, at the Land Rover Safari show at the Swansea Bus Museum on a cold but dry Sunday. Dozens of parents and their children came and enjoyed this unique event.
Over fifty Land Rovers and Range Rovers of all sizes and shapes turned up filling the main showroom to capacity.
The award-winning GCPRG fronted the event at the main entrance with their newly constructed mobile jail. This time as well we had a prisoner in ball and chains wandering around handcuffed to Sgt Harris as well as having porridge for his only meal of the day inside the jail. The kids loved it; we had dozens of photo sessions with the kids inside and outside the prison.
A mobile catering firm provided the tea, coffee, chips, and burgers which went down well on a freezing Sunday afternoon.
On hand was a beautifully restored London Routemaster double-decker that gives rides around the city centre and back.
I am Sgt Paul William Harris of the Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group who with my friend Allen Hill in his Naval Commanders uniform took a tour of the Wartime Wheels 2019 event held at Caldicot Castle, Monmouthshire over the bank holiday. We spent four hours there and had a brilliant time, thanks to the wartime girls at the Welsh display tents for their sandwiches and the delicious wartime recipe, bread pudding. Brilliant static displays by all who took part. Could have done with a demonstration area to show off these wartime artifacts.
