Po­lice Spec­tac­u­lar

Old Bike Australasia - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

“On Fri­day, 25th Oc­to­ber, 1974, a “Po­lice Spec­tac­u­lar” was held at the Royal Agri­cul­tural Show­ground, Syd­ney. The Spec­tac­u­lar was the first held since be­fore the Sec­ond World War and was staged pri­mar­ily as a pub­lic re­la­tions ex­er­cise to af­ford an op­por­tu­nity for mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to see at close range a demon­stra­tion of some of the skills and abil­i­ties at­tained by Po­lice and used in their day-to-day du­ties. The cost of stag­ing the Spec­tac­u­lar was met by the Fed­er­a­tion on the ba­sis that any sur­plus be devoted to the Boys’ Club Move­ment. Most Sec­tions of the Depart­ment con­trib­uted to­wards the stag­ing of the Spec­tac­u­lar. It at­tracted many thou­sands of spec­ta­tors and was an out­stand­ing suc­cess. A net profit of $10,000 was raised for the Fed­er­a­tion.” Stephen Bam­ford Via email
