Preserve your part in Gloucestershire Constabulary’s history:

Do you have a story to share or a photograph you would like to see maintained in the Constabulary Archive?

Why not come along to Waterwells HQ where the Archive team will be on hand to copy your photos and record your reminiscences.   Tea and cake will be available on the day!

We also want to identify people in photos already held in the Archives – perhaps you could help with this?

We hope to include some of the content on the new Gloucestershire Constabulary Archives website.

Sorry there is No Talk arranged for this Month

Forest of Dean branch – Members evening

Members are invited to do a short presentation on some aspect of their particular research, say an interesting memorial or family photo, etc., or some “brick wall” they cannot break through (we are expecting at least one of the latter).

A projector and laptop will be available if you have it on a CD or USB stick, or bring it along, as it is, and just hand it around – a photo, of course, not a memorial!

If a few members would be willing to co-operate it should make and interesting and entertaining evening.
