On Sunday 13th March we had a visit from members of the Emergency Services Motorcycle Association (ESMA). Five of the group were former colleagues of mine from Western Australia Police and well known to me during our careers. Brian Keed was one of my Sergeants when I was Officer In Charge of West Metro Traffic at Mirrabooka. Another of the group, Ivan Bennison, was a teenager living in Bassendean when I was stationed there and I knew his family, because in those days the local police were part of their community.
It was nice to reconnect with some old colleagues and also show them around the collection. Didn’t get to cruise around on their bikes though. Not this time.
