The true tale of his thirty years on the beat In 1952, more by default than by design, Harry Cole joined the Metropolitan Police. After a training of sorts he was posted to Carter Street Police Station in South London, and there he remained, beating the streets of Southwark as plain PC Cole, for thirty years. From time to time he put in for transfer - to CID or to traffic patrol - but these applications were always hilarious failures.
