The WWII Bolton Special Constabulary Long Service Roll by Garry Farmer has now been uploaded to the research library and is available to view and download.

Our Society exists to promote a general interest in the study of orders, decorations and medals and to actively encourage and publish research into all aspects of civil and military medals, with a particular focus on those issued by Great Britain and the Commonwealth countries.
