Alan Melville, was a special in Northern Constabulary in Scotland until he retired this week, after 51 years!
Alan joined Inverness Constabulary in 1961 before I was out of nappies and retired 3 years after me.
I often say these days I don’t know why anyone would want to stick 35 years in the police force these days, and that’s on a full salary. Doing it for free is a whole different level.
Well done Mr Melville, I think we can say you’ve done your bit now, have a long and happy retirement.
