Welcome to my personal website. Enjoy your visit!
I am a retired Police Inspector and would like to make contact with other police officers, both serving and retired, whether within the United Kingdom or overseas, for e-mail friendship and exchange of police related subjects including membership of the Christian Police Association (www.cpauk.net) the International Police Association (www.ipa-uk.org) and the National Association of Retired Police Officers (www.narpo.org). Indeed, I would welcome contact from any visitor to this site who shares similar interests to myself as detailed on the various pages of this website. Thankyou.
I grew up in Plympton, Devon. My parents, Ethel & Leslie Farley, are both deceased.My father served throughtout the Second World War in the Royal Engineers and post war as a plate layer with the Great Western Railway. I was the youngest of three children. I had a sister whose name was Margaret. Sadly she passed away in November 2021 at the age of 90. She was happily married to Norman Way and they had a beautiful daughter called Debbie Louise. Sadly, my elder brother Roy died in 1951 at the tender age of 21 from a common illness prevalent at that time.
I consider myself to be a devout and practising Christian. I am an altar server and former sacristan at my local Anglican church, and also a member of the Guild of Servants of the Sanctuary. My interests include Freemasonry, genealogy, travel, theatre and music, sport and blogging.
My previous and longstanding personal website on AOL was closed down on 31st.October 2008 when the company decided to withdraw from all members' its free webspace facility on AOL Hometown. I was therefore obliged to construct a new site and this is the result. At least you will not be bombarded with adverts on these pages! I would welcome any constructive comments or criticism from my visitors as to how I can improve its content or presentation.
