" I am the Officer in the above photograph (shaking hands). In the summer of 1974 I attended a wedding in Whiston with my friend Jim McCosh, Special Constable 106A, who later became a regular (4374) and served until retirement.

At the time I was Special Constable 113 A, although obviously at the time I was off duty.

Jim and I where returning from the Wedding to Liverpool and as we passed Halsnead Junior School in Whiston I heard the sound of breaking Glass coming from the school, I managed to climb over the 8ft high railings, and Jimmy ran further down the road to the gates. As I approached the school I saw a youth who was in the process of smashing all the ground floor windows. I arrested him and during the struggle that ensued he managed to get me to the ground and kicked me in the head a number of times to try and release my hold on him. I hung onto his other leg until Jimmy and eventually some local officers arrived.

He was taken to Prescot Police Station where he was charged with causing a substantial amount of Criminal Damage to the Property.

Whilst writing my statement I collapsed and was taken to Whiston Hospital where. I remained for 10 days with a skull fracture.

The youth subsequently pleaded guilty and was sent to prison and I was commended for 'Resolute Action in the arrest of a youth for Criminal Damage' and awarded the sum of £5 (which was worth having in 1975)."
