Successful Debut of New Unit
- The Flying Column deploy in defence of a vital asset
I am most happy to report that our new Flying Column, commanded by Chief Superintendent Ronald Bigsworth-Hill, has completed its first mission out of County and has recorded a noteworthy success in the process.
In pursuit of our stated aim of confronting extreme elements of whatever stripe wherever they should appear, I ordered Chief Superintendent Bigsworth-Hill to Herefordshire where concentrations of various undesirable elements were reported. Operating in support of local moderate forces, the Column succeeded in not only foiling the designs of revolutionary traitors but also caused the demise of a thuggish individual, one “Major” Straitt-Jackett, who has featured on my Wanted list for some time.
The people of Herefordshire will join with those of our native county in hailing Chief Superintendent Bigsworth-Hill’s glorious debut.
Report From Chief Superintendent Ronald Bigsworth-Hill
Acting on orders from Sir Albert BROCK, I led the Wiltshire Police Flying Column into Wigmore County in Herefordshire to counter the activities of various traitorous extremist groups of both the Left and Right of the political spectrum. The Flying Column was set-up with this express purpose in mind so my men greeted their mission with enthusiasm.
Advancing against the fascists
After sending our heavy weapons and motorcycle section off to join the Central Reserve, we deployed alongside Mr Himalaya Joe and his local volunteers. They were concentrated in defence of an important strategic asset.
An important objective to deny the enemy
Local farmers assist in livestock rescue
A vital objective was securing livestock to succour the defenders and deny them to the enemy. Farmers bravely assisted.
The enemy approaches – faux-sailors, confused, deluded and misguided
Members of the WPFC rescue some geese
To the east, the cricket ground is peaceful – but not for long
WPFC elements move forward
Platoon HQ heavy machine gun section occupies a bunker, supported by the RCMP special section, on secondment from the Dominions
The platoon is greatly cheered by the arrival of the artillery section – its Spotters hurry forward, much appreciated by farm-workers, engaged in livestock rescue.
First round from the artillery is spot on! The unmourned demise of Straitt-Jackett
With their opening shot, the WPFC artillery score a “major” hit…! Aiming with surgical precision, the gunners eliminate the BUF commander, the notorious, murderous thug, so-called “Major” Straitt-Jackett. This poisonous individual has been high on Chief Constable Brock’s Wanted list for some time and has now met his inevitable end.
The enemy,,,! The brainwashed gels of Cheltenham Ladies’ College with a BUF HMG in support. Sad
The 3rd Section, barely out of training but full of British spunk, are directed with cool precision by Platoon Sergeant, Ted Mundy
The enemy mobile artillery, no match for the WPFC gunners
One of Himalaya Joe’s bombardiers bravely attacks an enemy armoured car.
Meanwhile, to the east, a foul, communist behemoth is accosted by a choleric land-owner in full regimentals and an ugly incident is only averted by the intervention of the popular songstress, the fragrant Gracie Fields
Also on the eastern flank, the WPFC tank (a prototype Canadian design, rescued by Chief Superintendent Bigsworth-Hill from the railway sidings at Gloucester docks) reinforces the defenders of the cricket ground. Despite being driven round backwards, it gave valuable service.
And then a strange lull fell over the battlefield. The odd selection of deluded rightists facing the WPFC saw the error of their ways and joined the defenders. The communists were in danger of breaking through from the east (appropriately to the left) and threatening Wigmore Hall (seen on the hill top in the photo).
And so there was a general move to the north as erstwhile enemies joined forces against the common foe, the WPFC leading the way.
Quickly redeploying to face the new danger, the WPFC artillery opened upon the red hordes
The Cheltenham girls, eager to atone for their previous allegiance, assault the communist infantry
WPFC artillery enthusiastically greet Chief Superintendent Bigsworth-Hill in his prototype scout car. Their shells wreak havoc upon the communist convoy. The RCMP section are in reserve
The 1st Section, WPFC, first to the enemy as always, mount a stout defence despite heavy losses
Waves of red infantry, driving looted livestock before them, bear down on the gallant 1st Section, WPFC
As defenders gather to deny the communist advance, the RCMP, old campaigners, take the opportunity for a nap
WPFC HMG section coolly await the enemy
Looking west from Wigmore Hall’s ornamental garden, the masses of defenders converging on the faltering advance of the reds confirms that victory belongs to the defenders
As if a successful defence was not enough, the WPFC motorcycle section and tank lead a stunning counter attack to complete the destruction of the communist’s plans
Elsewhere, the Wigmore cricket team knock the Anglicans for 6…!
And so, as the BUF humbly admit the error of their ways and the communists dissolve in humiliating disarray, the triumphant Wiltshire Police Flying Column return to their home county, quietly content that they have rendered a corner of Herefordshire safe from extremist threat
