Thanks Paul....I'm currently doing a database of PP at the moment, I haven't started on the medal rolls yet, its currently just from newspapers and obituaries but its up to just short of 2000 officers, which is a lot of newspaper searching! I didn't have him so I'll add him,
Regards Gary

Gary,
I have a white metal Palestine Police KC cap badge with the slider stamped 4146 and once owned by Stan Holden. Is he on your database?

Arnhem veteran Para Sqn RE, POW and post war Palestine Police Officer.

See https://www.paradata.org.uk/people/stanley-holden

Gary, another possible addition to your database. Do you have Herbert (Bert) Waples? He told some very troubling stories about his time in Palestine. I spoke with him many times over forty years ago. I’m still in contact with his one of his Sons.. PM me if interested. DJ.
