Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr. Melvill.

"P C Stephens" veteran of the Anglo-Zulu War and 22 year veteran of the Leicester Police Force who died on 4 April, 1908.

During the Anglo-Zulu War Stephens with his section of 10/7 R.A., served with Evelyn Wood's Flying Column. The battery was armed with 2 7-pounder guns but converted over to Gatling Guns before going into the field with the second invasion and were the first Gatling armed battery in the British Army.

Stephens returned to South Africa from 1880 until 1886 and during that time in addition to getting married he was stationed in Zululand itself in August, 1884, as well as at Rorke's Drift in October of that same year.

He was granted Good Conduct Pay three times: 15 December, 1879, 23 April, 1882 and 23 April 1884. Stephens mustered out of service on 14 December, 1889 at Fort Rowen, Gosport with 12 years of service.

Pc John William Stephens reputed to have been the inspiration for the famous song, "The Laughing Policeman"

Now who would have thought, that information would be found on a Zulu War Forum ( Well done to all concerned, My Old mum's amazed...Here you go Mum. Have a trip dowm memory Lane..

Reply from Colin. Who’s a visitors guide for Welford Road Cemetery, Leicester.

"Hi Pete

Yes, PC Stephens, widely known as Tubby Stephens, is buried in Welford Road Cemetery, but unfortunately without a gravestone.

I too would like to be able to point it out - he is believed to be the inspiration for "The Laughing Policeman".

Sorry I can`t be more positive."


Best wishes

In Affectionate Remembrance of P.C. Stephens

I have five postcards depicting P.C. Stephens, I googled his name and came up with your forum. It makes interesting reading. I was going to try and sell them on ebay would any of your members be interested? I could photograph them and post them on your site. Not sure if they are worth much , or should i just keep them? thanks
