back during that period transferee applicants would do the physical test in force and the result, pass or fail would be given to the IoM Constabulary. What you achieved on the bleep test wasn’t relevant .
in early 1994 two male officers transferred from the Met and Essex, both grew up in England
in late 1994 four male officers were interviewed with positions for all of them should they pass the interview. One was a returning Manxman, all the others were England born and bred. Only one failed the interview, which I assume was you.
