Remembrance Sunday Leeds – 4

Picture of 2 members of the West Yorkshire Police mounted section riding past the Leeds town during the remembrance parade.

I spoke with these two officers before the service and parade started so I know that the officer on the chestnut is called PC Jesson and she is riding Fimbar who is 10 years old. I was going to use another photo that I took earlier with just Fimbar and PC Jesson, but I think I prefer this later shot. Because of this I have no idea who this officers colleague is, but due to the name tag that the police horses have attached to their bridle I know that the other horse is called Marley.

The mounted section not only are available for operational policing duties but they also provide officers for ceremonial roles like this one.

I may be wrong but I think the officers of the mounted section are the approachable face of modern policing. Maybe it is because they are not in a car speeding by, but I think it is more to do with working with horses.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
