Remembering my grandfather, James Christie, Chief Constable Greenock Police Force for 32 years. He should have retired before the Second World War but stayed on until 1945. Much loved.

I was walking in the greenock cemetery and came across Lachlan's gravestone which was described as follows:
In Memory Lachlan McInnon

Ages 39

Remembering my good friend and colleague CONSTABLE GEORGE TAYLOR , Strathclyde Police : murdered on duty November 1976 at Carstairs in lanark sub division and Q Div of the force .
Back in 1976 I applied for a secondment from Q Div Strathclyde Police to SCRO (Records ) and mentioned one nightshift to George I was applying for that secondment and he wanted to stay at Carstairs to get into Lanark CID. I got my secondment and I was at George's Police Funeral that November (1976) and CC David McNee attended the cremation funeral obviously . George and I had served in the Lanarkshire Constabulary til the May 1975 merger to become part of Strathclyde police . I moved back south to West Yorks Police and promotion soon after .. I remember Constable George Taylor every years esp at November time . I was last at Tulliallan in 1973 to the Driving Division as i was there November 1970 and again the year following at the Junior Division Scottish Police College .

PC Thomas King was shot at Milton, Tulloch, near Nethy Bridge on 20th December 1898. As we remember him on the 114th anniversary of his death, we will spare a thought for all those other selfless officers who made the ultimate sacrifice. Always remembered by his great grand daughter and family in Australia. Jocelyn Gould

I served as a Police Officer, serving in Stirling and Clackmannan, Fife Constabulary and ultimately Lancashire Constabulary retiring after 30 years in 1992. I see two names of colleagues I served with in Stirling. One, Harry Lawrie, I was a cadet with at Stirling before being appointed. I returned for a visit to Tulliallan this week and was very impressed with the Memorial.

I recently spoke to Duncan Nicolson he told me his story and it moved me so I google his good friend Ross Hunt names as I want to know more. Ross fell in the line of duty as did Duncan but Duncan lived to tell his story. I only wish more could be done to help survivors like Duncan and that they are not forgot. I have been to tulliallan once for my husbands passing out parade and if I ever get the opportunity to again I will visit the memorial!

What a worthy memorial, and suddenly it's personal too.
I never thought to be visiting this website until I recently discovered that my 3xGreat grandfather Robert Campbell was murdered by a drunk in 1863.
Tulliallan isn't that far away from me, so I have the chance to pay my respects to my ancestor and all of his brave colleagues.

Having just read about Jim McNultys sad demise in 2004 this is a short message/tribute about "Wee Jimmy McNulty". I had the honour to work with Jim in Traffic in Glasgow, pre Strathclyde. I remember one particular case where Jim and myself pursued a guy who had a Nationwide lookout posted for him, as we drew up in Victoria Road Glasgow Jim decided it was a good opportunity to try and grab the guy. I will have this everlasting image of "Wee Jimmy" hanging on to this guys car door handle as it shot off up Victoria Road with myself in hot pursuit. I end by saying that of course we got our man. Even then Jim never let go. R.I.P pal.
