VG Day - Remembering Victor Green on what would have been his 100th birthday

Albert Victor Green (Victor to his friends and family) was born on the 24th May 1920. He served 5 years with the RAF from 1940 to 1945 and a further year with the Army, before joining his local police force - Staffordshire County Police - in 1946.

Initially being posted to the West Bromwich area, he met his soon-to-be wife Jacquie, who was working for Staffordshire Police as a Women's Auxiliary Police Corp. 18 months later the couple married and went on to have three children; Lesley, Michael and Sue.

Victor progressed through the ranks and eventually retired in 1976 from Brierley Hill Police Station as a superintendent. Back in 2014 - Victor and Jacquie returned to the station to meet then Chief Superintendent Chris Johnson (now Assistant Chief Constable) who was the commander of the Walsall Division. Their grandson Richard Lockley had kept the policing tradition alive in the family, working at that time as a PCSO for West Midlands Police.

Sadly Victor died in 2017, three years before reaching his 100th year, but we would like to join Jacquie and the rest of the Green family in remembering him and his services to his country in the Armed Forces and to policing in the West Midlands.
