South Wales Police - Heritage Centre

I visited this 'museum' today with the Neath U3A. It was a very enjoyable visit. It's a small place and only opens on one day a week as a rule. Plenty of exhibits on policing through the ages in South Wales. If planning a visit I think it best to let them know in advance - it is a secure site, of course.

 

A project team there has produced booklets for each of the years 1914-1918 that chronicle the lives of South Wales policemen who were KIA.

 

They also have a booklet (18 pages) about policemen who served in the Welsh Guards and an impressive 34 page booklet on 'The Policeman Who Ended the War' - Ernest Rollings of Neath. He commanded an armoured-car unit that overran a German HQ in 1918 and he secured detailed plans of the Hindenburg Line which proved invaluable in breaching it.

 

Worth a visit over an hour or so and I suspect that copies of the booklets could be obtained by post for a modest donation.

 

(I'm hoping the Mods allow this post - I think there's a good chance they're too busy too check as tonight is their monthly voodoo disco dance and chicken sacrifice do...)
