The following has been received from Mr Tony Davies (Rtd. PC280):-
I have seen the article on the NARPO website and can add to that. I was posted to Ystradgynlais in November 1970 and on arriving I was asked if I held a motor cycle licence which I did. I was then shown a DMW motor cycle parked up in the station garage – the bike had not been used for ages as not one Police Officer held a motor cycle licence! As you can imagine, I had one hell of a job to start it.
During my time at Ystradgynlais I patrolled on the DMW regularly and ran dispatches to Ammanford every week through 1971. The bike I rode is identical to the one in the photo and I believe it was replaced by a BSA 250cc in 1972 which I used until leaving Ystradgynlais for Tenby in October 1974.
