Medals & Awards to British Police by Local Authorities of the United Kingdom

A detailed study of the Military Medals awarded to the air forces between 1916 and 1957. Many original records have been researched to provide an account of each recipient’s life, record of service, the events leading to the award, previously un-published recommendations and citations, and details of other awards.



As the title says this is a guide to the many varied local awards given to police officers for gallantry, meritorious and long service. They are listed by the issuing authority and each entry has details of the award, mits history and an illustration. Most of the awards are medals with a ribbon while some are metal or embroidered badges.

This is an excellent reference to an interesting and unappreciated area of police history.
