West Midland Police info from Wikipedia:

West Midlands Police was formed on 1 April 1974, owing to the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972 which created the new West Midlands metropolitan county. It was formed by merging the Birmingham City Police, the earlier West Midlands Constabulary, and parts of Staffordshire County and Stoke-on-Trent Constabulary, Warwickshire and Coventry Constabulary and West Mercia Constabulary. The first Chief Constable appointed to the new force was Sir Derrick Capper, the last Chief Constable of Birmingham Police.

West Midlands Police seem to have their own Flickr account. Among other things they have a few historical images.

I omitted to say that this picture previously posted on the forum a few years ago is supposed to be at Elmdon Airport. When I worked the rank with my taxi at the airport I do not remember either of these two policewomen.
