Memories of Carl Collins


David Addis

I remember Carl as a LReg and RPO from my time in the Reg School, I have included the above photo as the way Carl wore the peak of his cap always stuck in my mind, bit like the Guards RSM who manages the Service of Rememberance, well not quite so much. Carl also served in the Reg School as an Instructor and in the Portsmouth SIB. I also remember Carl being a nice chap. There must be some more memories of Carl for these drafts. If you have please email the Webmaster using this link

Fred Dowse, Royal Navy Regulator and later Inspector, Royal Australian Navy Police




I have memories of good times .  I lived (unofficially) and worked with Carl ‘Jumper’ Collins as a Leading Regulator at Pompey HQ and then as Secretary in the Drug Squad as it moved to the new HQ in the barracks.  He was a good team leader in what was in many ways a pioneering role.. There was certainly a lot of job satisfaction.
