This year has started with sadness for our VP, as his father-in-law died in the first few days of 2014 after a long illness.
Also 2013 was a sad time for a couple of our close friends.
Nock (President- Lost Saints-London Crew) lost his father in March 2013 and his grandfather in November 2013.
Thomas ‘Choc’ (President-Watchmen-MC-California) lost his father on New Year ’s Eve.
We would like to send our heartfelt condolences to Eric, Nock and Thomas.
Our parents make us the men that we are. We owe them so much for helping to keep us on a straight path in life. The rest is up to us, to teach our own children right and wrong and lead them the best we can.
Our friend Luka, (Watchmen-MC) had his own battle in 2013, nearly dying at the hands of diabetes resulting in partially losing his eyesight. Thankfully all appears rosier for the big guy now.
On consulting the Police roll of honour trust we notice that ten British police officers lost their lives in 2013. Three officers being from our home force (Metropolitan Police) and three from the helicopter crash in Glasgow (Police Service of Scotland).
The Lost Saints “Ride to The Wall” 29th September was well attended by Motorcyclists from all walks of life. It was a very sad occasion as two of our MET officers had died in the three weeks leading up to the remembrance ride. Firstly, Pc Shazahan Wadud 08/09/13 and then Pc Andy Duncan 21/09/13. Family and colleagues were in attendance.
This to our Brothers and Sisters in other countries by comparison it may not seem a lot but in our opinion one ‘officer down’, is one too many. If you go by population it is probably quite a high number. As we see on our Face book page, so many officers in the USA pay the ultimate sacrifice. To those officers, Peelers Lemc salute you.
On a happy note, Richie (President-Blue Knights-England 2) made an honest woman of the lovely Angie. May they share a long and happy life together.
For Peelers Lemc, in September, we celebrated our first anniversary. Throughout 2013 we met and gained the friendship of many brothers/sisters from all quarters of the world, we extended the LEMC family. It’s not easy building a club from the ground up. A big thank you to everyone involved.
Brothers and Sisters of the LEMC community, wishing you a healthy and prosperous 2014
It is a sad Day for the Metropolitan Police Service.
Officer Andy Duncan died this morning from the injuries sustained from the hit and run that he was a victim of in the early hours of Friday morning. Our thoughts and prayers go to his wife and two children, colleagues and anyone that knew him.
“Your duty here is done Brother, now Rest in Peace.”
We would like to set a few things straight with regards to membership to Peelers LE. This is in answer to a couple of the recent enquiries made to us.
We only take membership from serving or retired civilian Police officers. This does not include military Police or any other Law Enforcement based professions. We are a Police motorcycle Club, embracing Police history. This was a conscious decision made when forming Peelers LE. We will not be changing the rules to gain members. Becoming a large club for the sake of it does not interest us. Quality over quantity and from our chosen profession.
Peelers LE would not force their ideas onto any other LE organisations and respect the membership criteria of their respective clubs.
“Their clubs, their rules”.
