Now!! Details of a Few of the True and Recorded C.F OAKES
Disciplinary matters from the past:
On 25th July 1843 Constable Thomas Kelly aged 29 Established in Harlow for over 45 years
years, a former paper maker, concluded his 13th day 19 SERVICE BAY, WYCH ELM , HARLOW
career when he was found ‘Drunk on Parade’ for the
same offence in 1873 an Hussar was flogged to death at
Hounslow Barracks, pursuant to his colonel’s order, the
skills needed for a contemporary military command were
not those needed to form an efficient Constabulary.
15th November 1859 Constable 145 George Stewart
formerly a gardener with 18 months service, had to leave
the constabulary because ‘His wife was a lunatic’
31st August 1872 Constable 36 Robert Parr aged 31
years was required to leave the constabulary because of
‘The Conduct of his wife was prejudicial to the Service’
One must ask the question ‘what conduct was that’
and I am sorry that is for me to know and you to
guess.
