If he was in the Air Ministry Constabulary then he was a civilian police officer.  The National Archives comes up with:

There don't seem to be any personnel records among them except those at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre but what they are is not spelled out.  Perhaps get in touch with them?  Ccontact details here:
