The Metropolitan Police Bushey Sports Club is one of 4 Police Sports Club associated with the Metropolitan Police Service. Built in 1967, Bushey is a purpose built members sports club offering sporting, leisure and social facilities for family and friends of serving police personnel, retired officers and staff. Our sports club was constructed on land bought from the Royal Masonic School for Boys, currently the American University building, which unfortunately closed in 1977 due to declining numbers. In the early days of the sports club, the Police Cadets were used to hunt for and remove flints by hand from the playing fields. This was done to avoid injuries to players of both rugby and football.

Today The Metropolitan Police Bushey Sports Club has some of the best sporting facilities and grounds in the county, hosting a wide variety of individuals and sports teams from across Hertfordshire and North London, including cricket, football, and bowls. The club also hosts a number of social events from Cabaret to Comedy Nights, Quiz Nights to Boxing Evenings, and Wedding Functions to Specialist Dine Nights.

For 41 years the club has entertained members of the Police Service, their friends and family and with the highly regarded reputation it has gained, will continue for another 41 years.

Not sure if the quote was for my attention, but to answer the general question presented. I was full regs with the Corps or RMP for old money. 83 - 90 previous RSigs before 83. Met from 90 to present day, but joined TAVR RMP from 91/2 to 2001 and then TAVR with another mob and then commissioned until I handed in my kit bag in 2008. Wished I had stayed but would have had to retire by now!

We may have crossed at some stage maybe Fally during a visit to IGB and Belsen or during the big exercises Lion heart for example.

Steve is Devon and Cornwall, Scouse is legal rep and Joe last I heard was with 253 V, not heard about Jock since he made RSM

We now have a brand new Forces and ex forces discussion topic that seems to be seeing a lot of use, if you're interested! :biggrin:
