Now listen up men, I have good news and bad news...
Firstly the good news, as there has been no recorded Spies, Infiltrators or German attacks in our stretch of the coast line, especially as we are the closest to France we have been awarded " Best Practice " Status....
Now HQ want me to go to other areas of tbe UK to improve their detection rates of assorted Crimes..
So the Bad news , I am leaving you, joining the Metropolitan Police as their next Commissioner and will be based in Croydon...

Also not a Caption , Dad's Army and other early TV shows would go over the heads of British Millenials....This Cap Comp was still better than anything from Netflix. Other streaming services are available
