Police Car UK Members Classic Vehicle Fleet

All the PC-UK fleet of vehicles are privately owned and have been restored and maintained to the very highest standards. We will not allow part restored or tatty looking vehicles onto our stand at any event. The owners are rightly very proud of their vehicles and will go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that their cars, vans and bikes are exactly as they were when in service. Why do they do it you might ask? To preserve a little piece of our Police transport history is the answer and the public love looking at them when they are out on show.

If you would like to contact the owner of any of the vehicles in this gallery please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to pass on your enquiry.

History:
BRIEF HISTORY : Written  By Mike Breading 
My father Pc 583 George Breading joined Essex Constabulary in late 1948 and was posted after initial training at Eynsham 
Hall to Hornchurch. As I understand Essex did not issue cycles but gave a cycle allowance which inspired my father to 
Purchase a Raleigh cycle from a cycle shop at 192 High Street, Hornchurch, Essex.
My father was stationed at Hornchurch for two years, and during this time this cycle was used for beat duties and general 
private transport! I can recall my father telling me that during a house move within the Hornchurch division, he actually 
used his cycle to move boxes, suitcases and various household items from one Police house to another! 
My mother recalls my father telling her that after one particular night duty which in those days was a 14 day shift, he fell 
asleep whilst on his cycle and fell off on to the pavement! It is unsure if he was cycling or stationary!
In 1950 my father was posted to Newport near Saffron Walden on a rural beat, which consisted of one sergeant and one 
constable, and this cycle would have been used on a daily basis, except when he had to cycle from Newport to Saffron 
Walden to pick up the area car for relief duties.
In 1957 another posting sent us on our way to Brentwood, and again the cycle was used on occasions for beat duties, but 
mainly my fathers duties consisted of area car driving
In 1961 my father was promoted to sergeant Ps 99 and dispatched to Clacton-on Sea, and this time the cycle became his 
daily commuter to and from the Police station.
In 1963 another post was on the horizon, and off we moved to the Grays division, where I can recall my father again 
commuting to and from Grays nick on his cycle until his retirement in 1976. I do remember that some 
repairs/refurbishment were carried out to this cycle whilst at Grays, but it was during the 1960’s when I was in my late 
teen’s and motorbikes and the likes have taken up my recollection of this period! Yes, memory fades here! But saying that, 
this cycle is very memorable because of the double cross bar and being a large imposing bike, and when you consider my 
father was 6ft 3 inches tall and weighed 18 and a half stone, he  was not a bobby to mess with and a sturdy cycle was 
called for.
My mother and father retired to Maylandsea in 1990 where he occasionally cycled to the local shops, but in 2001 due to 
my father’s illness they moved to Canvey to be closer to family, but he sadly passed away only three weeks after the move.
Before moving to Canvey my father gave his cycle to a neighbour and a very good friend Ted Smith,
And that was the last the family heard or saw of this remarkable cycle, until only just recently when I came across a photo 
on our club forum of a double cross bar Raleigh cycle, I thought to myself strange my father had a cycle just like that and 
thought no more of it! But when contact was made by the Smith family from Maylandsea to my mother that the Cycle had 
been given to collector in Southampton by the name of Alan Clack well you could have knocked me down with a feather! I 
have since spoken to Alan and relayed our family delight that my father’s cycle is now in good hands, especially in the 
knowledge that a member of PCUK will show this cycle for all to see. My father would have been proud and delighted!
