Bertie Daniels is unusual as he is both a Auxilier and a Special Duties Operator.
Bertie Scoggins Daniels was born in Brockley, London in 1899, and joined the Royal Marine Artillery on 19 September 1916. He served as a Gunner 15143 until 22 Jan 1920, during the Great War, before joining the Royal Irish Constabulary on 18 March 1920, at the age of 20. After just a few weeks of R.I.C. police training, he was assigned to serve in Kerry from 21 April 1920. In 1920 Constabulary Medal (Ireland) was awarded to Constable B. S. Daniels, Royal Irish Constabulary, believed to be for gallantry in operations in East Kerry in May or early June 1920, shortly after Daniels had begun his active service in the field. Daniels served on in Kerry until the R.I.C. was disbanded in 1922.
In 1922 Bertie moved to Melbourne, Australia but returned to Burt House Farm at some stage. He is recorded as 5 feet 10 inches with a fresh complexion, grey eyes and brown hair.
