Early 70s I'd say. Once went to Church car auctions and the usual heap of junk rolled in, the auctioneer announced: "This car is sold with a warranty, I'll personally guarantee it will get to Ossy before it breaks down."

Dyson was still the beat bobby for Church in the early '80's as me and the mates knew all too well. He was a real pain cos no matter how far you ran after getting up to a spot of 'mischief' you could always guarantee he'd nab you by the ear before you got home!!

More of his ilk should be about these days imho but unfortunately the pc (no pun intended!) brigade wouldn't allow it
