The V W in this image could be that of a high rankig police officer by the name of Hepton, when I was the paintshop manager at the V W distributers on Regent Street we were orderd to give him top service and preference, this could have been that our top director liked to have a drink or two with his 2hr lunch.

I worked here as a pc from January 1969 upon my return from Panal Ash police training school. The owner of the vw was probably chief inspector Joe Hepton The J4 van was used along with the old velocette Noddy bikes. Each shift had about 25 pcs with 3 sergeants. Most of the old coppers were ex military and were difficult to work alongside. I was shown round by Brian Wakeford an ex baker and a giant of a man. He was brilliant - looked a lot like Hoss Cartwright on Bonanza. Sadly he died in a car crash on Meanwood Road being driven home after a shift do. Lots of memories of my first 2 years in the job before transferring up to Chapeltown. .
