Default Army Depot Police/Security Force Police Cyprus

Hi all, Following on from my last post for defence security badges I'm looking for, does anyone have any images of the Cyprus Army Depot Police or current Security Force Police? I served in Cyprus in the Eastern Sovereign base Area/Episkopi/Akrotiri and although we were told about the (then) Army Depot Police (along with all the other police forces: SBA Police, RMP, RAF Police and the Civil Republic of Cyprus Police) and warned NOT to get arrested by any of them, I never actually saw any depot police on either occassion I was in Cyprus, anyone got anything I can copy?

Regards

Tony

Hi Tony

Somewhere I have a cutting from Soldier showing the Army Depot Police (Cyprus), unfortunately I'm still unpacking after a house move last year so cannot currently lay hands on it (and couldn't scan it anyway at present), but when it comes to light I'll send a scan.

There are some photos of the Security Force Police here (plus the SBA Police in another album):

When I was up the mountain in 1979-80 we had RAF Police Auxiliaries on the camp gate, are they no longer used in Cyprus?


All the best

Graham

Cheers Graham, that's great, really interesting and look forward to the scans when you're finally unpacked (last time I moved it took best part of 4 years!)

RAF Police Auxiliaries? I don't know, I was in Cyprus in the 90's but didn't go up to the RAF stations up in the mountains so never got to see!

Best regards

Tony
