KNOTTINGLEY POLICEMEN

ADDED 18 MARCH 2006

I have recently come across the Digest magazines for Pontefract, Knottingley and Ferrybridge and wondered if you might be interested in the following photograph of my father and two constables taken outside Knottingley police station in the 1920s.

Sergeant Stokes

My family consisted of my father, Richard Whiteoak Stokes and his wife (my mother), older brother Jack Stokes and my younger brother Arthur Stokes who was born at the police station in 1926. He later worked for Knottingley Council in the financial department.

My older brother Jack played the organ at St. Botolph's church under the direction of Dr. Haigh, Musical Director.

When my father retired from the police force in the 1920s, we moved to Hill Top, next door to Mr. Jackson Morris, whom I believe was headmaster at Ropewalk School.
