I was based at the then HQ at the Town Hall, I worked in all the departments except Traffic. I started in the Chief Clerks office, then the Information Room and CID.
All the offices were in the Quadrangle, the cells were underneath and the Magistrates Court was up the stairs from the quadrangle by the CID offices – I can tell you a tale or two about life sixty years ago!
I did my National Service from 1956 to 1958 and when I was demobbed went into the Motor Trade, at least they let you take the car home!
I was a very frequent visitor to the Motor Tax Office which was also off the Quadrangle as part of the Town Clerks office.
