Introduction

Judge King Hamilton said:

"PCs Bailey and Redpath behaved in accordance with the highest traditions of the police where courage has no boundaries."

A youth with a shotgun was arrested by WPC Penny Arch late one night in Farnham. When on patrol she heard the sound of breaking glass and saw a youth running away. He turned and threatened to shoot her and then ran off with the officer in pursuit. Joined by PC Dunford they disarmed and arrested the youth.

Although Surrey Constabulary ceased to exist at the end of 1992 in favour of Surrey Police, some events of 1993 have been included as a 'roll-over'.

Editor's note: In keeping with the format used in Parts 1 to 3, this material is partitioned into five parts, each covering a period of five years. This part also includes lengthy personal accounts.
