    Here's Richard Clarke again on the phone in the "latest" Edgar Wallace, 1963's To Have and To Hold, as Sergeant Charles Wagner, who, along with Sergeant Ray Barrett, is well under the thumb of Inspector W. Roberts (aka William Hartnell in his penultimate role before becoming a Time Lord):

    Thank you again, Gerald. No details of his character but Richard had a recurring role in Compact, the forgotten BBC Soap.


    In this scene from All Coppers Are ... (released 1972), a long line of Policemen are prepared for a violent demonstration:



    Are these three (from left to right) Walter Henry, Bernard Barnsley and Bill Hibbitt?

    Later on, I'll add numbers to all of those whose faces are shown (about 20) and put together a Picasa web album, which I can link from here.

    In Sapphire (1959), Nigel Patrick and an out-of-shot Michael Craig have a good go at Harry Baird (no solicitor present of course):


    But who is the familiar policeman standing in the background?

    And is this him again about seven years later playing the uncredited Mr. Smith in DR. FINLAY'S CASEBOOK "The Gifts of the Magi"?

    Thanks, Dave. He also played a member of the Loyal Opposition in The Mouse in the Moon, along with Anthony Lang and Reg Thomason.

    I counted - and numbered - 23 faces altogether. Hopefully you will find this easy to navigate:

    Policemen in riot scene of 'All Coppers Are ...' (1972)

    Some of the unidentified faces look familiar, in particular the actor dominating the frame here:


    13 is Tony Wright, who has the minor role of Police Inspector. No sign of Aitch in this scene.

    There are a number of policemen towards the end of Hammer's Straight On Till Morning (1972), including this one:



    Could it be Alan Meacham eyeing up the young lady?

    Another copper here (looking straight at the camera!) with Stanley Baker and Geoffrey Frederick on location in Manchester for Hell is a City (1960). Looks a bit thin in the face for him, but could it be Bill Westley, Sr.?:

    'Ello, 'ello, outside John Horsley's 'ouse 'ere:


    Could this policeman in classic stance be Neil Hallett in A Time to Kill (1953)?

    A pivotal moment in No Orchids for Miss Blandish (1948) means definitely a bullet for someone else:


    Could this trigger-happy cop be Terence Alexander?

    Certainly Neil Hallett and I agree that's a young Terence Alexander. Well spotted, Gerald.

    Thanks to Jim for John Gallant, who has an IMDb filmography. Don't forget the others ...

    Policemen in riot scene of 'All Coppers Are ...' (1972)

    Can anyone identify the Policeman (or even the Nurse) with Donald Wolfit and a dying Richard Shaw in Ghost Squad?:



    From the episode Bullet with My Name on It (1961), which also includes Victor Harrington, 'Dave's Waiter' and 'Hummies Extra No. 2'!

    Does anyone recognise this suspicious Policeman from The Party's Over (filmed in 1963)?



    It's the morning after the night before as Oliver Reed and his friends slowly walk past him on Albert Bridge.

    Thanks to Phil for prompting me to revisit the film (initially to find taxi driver Fred Griffiths' appearance). Some interesting finds along the way.

    Do you remember our first subjects, from the Gideon's Way episode The Great Plane Robbery (filmed March/April 1965)?



    I watched this earlier in the week, oddly enough, but it was last night's viewing of Ghost Squad - Assassin (1961) that
    convinced me the one on the left is Roland Brand. Hopefully you'll all agree and perhaps remember him from somewhere:


    Roland is in a two-part episode of The Baron I'll be watching again soon. His name is strangely unfamiliar and yet, in addition to all the ITC series mentioned, I will have also seen the Canadian-born actor in one of my favourite films - Lolita. Oh really? Must check that out. It's time I saw it again anyway.

    Yes, Roland Brand seems to be one of those ones no one notices. He was also one of the Canuck pilots in Reach For the Sky and one of the "American" gangsters (almost all played by Canadians) in Goldfinger ("What's with that trick pool table?") Doesn't appear to have acted after the early 1970s, and died rather young at age 54.

    Yes, I'm fairly certain that's the same actor in those captures, Dave. Goldfinger is another film I've been meaning to watch again.

    Mystery policemen in 'Make Mine Mink' (1960)

    This film's IMDb page has a long and helpful list of uncredited actors. There was no sign of Colin Gordon, however,
    and I have a feeling that the actress listed as Claire Golding, and who plays Ruby Golding, is actually Claire Gordon.


    Peter Vaughan, right, has made it to the uncredited cast list as 'Policeman in Car', but not the Driver. Who is he?:




    Is the actor on the left here Alan Rolfe? He is referred to as 'Policeman on Beat' at IMDb and I can see a similarity
    between that face and dissolute's capture of Alan in an episode of The Avengers. Gerald Campion on the right?:



    Perhaps Gerald can confirm that's Alan Rolfe, having recently seen him in the same year's Piccadilly Third Stop.

    By the way, I've identified the monument they are standing in front of as the South End Green drinking fountain.


    I recognise this actor from somewhere. I'm sure he's Scottish (Jack, or Jock?). Is his job description Radio Operator?:



    "The Apex Cold Storage Unit in Monkwell Street (?) has just been raided. The thieves
    have made a getaway with many valuable furs. Repeat. The Apex Cold Storage Unit"

    Jack Stewart. I imagine his role would best be described as "police dispatcher."

    In the police car it's Bill Baskiville.

    It does look a lot like Alan Rolfe, yes, cornershop, but that's not Gerald Campion with him.

    (Jack Stewart btw Dave is John Gary listed on Aveleyman for Urge to Kill. Plus Kenneth Midwood and Christopher Trace are the detectives the other way round! Ernie Rice and Terry Plummer are also in that film.)
