I think the Officer seated second from the left on the front-row appears in similar photos elsewhere on here; He also reminds me of 1950's TV policeman PC49. Splendid countenance.

Second row, far left - could be John Murphy, PC41.

Comments by Peter, 2nd September 2019  
JM I don't think that PC can be John Murphy because he isn't wearing Wigan Borough uniform.

The driving school then, was at the Lancashire Police H.Q. Hutton, near Preston.

Albert S - The presence of both Enos Banks and Joe Keegan on the photo might suggest it was an Advanced Course, as i believe they were both traffic men.

Comments by Albert.S., 8th September 2019  
Mick L.D. I remember Enos going onto traffic in the early sixties, but I have no recollection of Joe Keegan going onto traffic in the early sixties. I do concede that the officer next to Enos, does resemble Joe.

Sorry Mick L D. I have just noticed his signature on the next photograph.

Pc 39 Joe Keegan is middle on the back row .... yes this was the Advanced Motor Driving Course

Many thanks, Alex.

Alex. Are you Joes son?. When Joe was retired, I visited him. He showed me a photograph album. It contained a lot of photographs relating to Wigan Borough Police.
