Thank you very much for all of your work Paul.

I have one question, should the "ps" before fairbrass and before 11-62076 be "PC"?

This is so much more information than I could ever have believed possible.

Thank you again.

Regards

Brian

Thanks once again Paul.

I actually was wondering if the ps stood for police sergeant but then I thought that would have been too good to be true, as it often is in collecting.

Now I am very happy!

Regards

Brian

I wondered why in the Old Bailey reports the policemen's numbers seemed so low. They are giving the division letter and collar number. Might help with some of the more common names.

Adding to the information already given:

Cornelius Fairbrass joined the force 31/12/1977 with the Warrant Number 62076. He left 17/06/1895 (dismissed) and was then a PS serving in G Division (Finsbury) with the number 11G.

This information comes from the discharge register and part of the old police orders database.

I'm sorry there are holes in my book as mentioned above but this is because I was struggling to get a complete picture for many of the men who joined before around 1879. So if there were too many blanks in a man's entry I had little choice but to omit them as the entry was of limited value. I do have various bits of information that may help pick up those not included in the book so please feel free to ask if you can't find someone.

All I can say, besides thank you for the information, is that your fellows are amazing!

What started out as a purchase through error has become one of my treasured artifacts of my collection.

Thanks again.

Brian
