Maggie Morse, nee Barrell (left 1960)
After a spell in the Civil Service I trained as an audiology technician. Looking down children's ears soon lost its appeal and I went to work for a pharmaceutical company and went into sales. I went on to work for a German company in technical sales and spent some time in the Fatherland.
I married Dennis Morse in 1971, and had a son, Daniel, in1973. Dennis was in the Met Police and yes, he really was Inspector Morse. He died suddenly in 1989 of a heart attack, and my mother died shortly after, so my dad came to live with us as we had a five bedroom house in Herts.
By this time I was sales and marketing manager of a photographic company, but I gave up full time work to care for dad. I worked for the NSPCC visiting schools and giving talks to kids, parents, staff and governors, with a view to fund raising.
After four years dad went to stay with my brother (also an Old Uff, 2 years older than me) and I went to work full time at Harlow College as business liaison officer working in local businesses with human resources and staff arranging and designing training courses.
I now live with another ex met officer and moved to Wales six years ago. I can be found on-line at www.saes.me.uk and my address is:
