I did write this previously, but somehow it seems that it never quite made it to here!! However, I was privileged to be both a friend and colleague of Geoff's whilst we served in the (then) Bournemouth Borough Force. We joined the CID together as what were known as Aides to CID', under the tutelage of D.S. Stan Davies. As an Aide to CID, you were given the most unwanted shifts of either 5pm -1am or 6pm - 2am!! Clearly this was to see if you really did want to be a detective and we were also given mainly watching of certain areas, particularly in the summer. Geoff and I worked as a pair and we had some quite spectacular successes and eventually were asked to join the CID in our own right. Geoff was a top class detective and our Force benefited from his dedication and patience. I miss you Geoff, your old friend George Eldridge - now living in Mount Beauty, Victoria, Australia.
