Original, 1919 Liverpool Riots Era British ‘Gladstone Riot Shield’ By Hiatt & Co Ltd Birmingham Used By Liverpool Police. Sn 11199 - 11199
In 1919, due to appalling pay and working conditions the British Liverpool Police took the unprecedented action of going on strike, refusing to work until pay and conditions were improved. This led to wide spread rioting and looting on the streets of Liverpool. The British Government’s response was rapid and severe. The Army was brought in to bolster non-striking Police, to keep order but especially to break the strike. In the end, every single Police Officer who took part in the strike was dismissed. Pension rights were lost and many were never able to work again. Non Striking Police Officers who were deployed to quell the Rioting in Liverpool were issued with Gladstone Riot Shields. The steel riot shields were developed in 1914 by Robert Gladstone of Liverpool. In many cases these shields were the only safety equipment available in situations of riot and disorder. This shape of shield, albeit made of Perspex and other composite materials is used by present day Police Forces. This is an excellent original Gladstone Riot Shield used by Liverpool Police during the 1919 Riots. The steel ovoid shield retains most of its original black paint. It has the correct viewing slot to allow the Officer carrying the shield to look forward while being protected by the body of the shield. The body of the shield is curved with a raised centre and a riveted seam for strength to deflect blows from hand held weapons or thrown missiles. The raised centre ‘boss’ and the turned edges of the shield could also be used offensively to strike an attacker. The rear of the shield has the correct steel grip bar riveted to the body and original brown leather retaining straps with brass buckles and rivets together with correct horse hair/ felt pad to cushion impacts. A plate on the side of the grip bar bears the manufacturer and model detail ‘THE LAW & ORDER REG TRADE MARK POLICE SHIELD GLADSTONE’S PROV PATENTS RD 598932 & 599558 HIATT & CO LTD ***HOUSE LANE BIRMINGHAM’ (Hiatt of Birmingham were renowned makers of early Police Equipment). Image 2 is a contemporary image of Police Officers training with Gladstone shields and inset is the detail on the plate of this shield. The small plate measures (1 1/2" x 2"). The shield is 21” wide and 24” in length it is in excellent condition and has just scuffs and minor bumps consistent with age and service use. Price for this superb piece of British Policing history includes UK delivery. Sn 11199
