Pc on Duty Guildhall Square, Carmarthen 1906.
The Police officer on duty standing on the pavement is my great grandfather, Thomas Rees, Pc No.2, who served from 1903 to 1911 in Carmarthen town.
He was one of the twelve ' Coppers' of Carmarthen town, also known as the 'Carmarthen Shilling'.
I am currently a serving Police Officer with the Dyfed Powys Police, stationed at Haverfordwest, Pembs.
