British Transport Police Male Constable's / Sergeant's Blue Serge Helmet With British Transport Police Helmet Plate, Size 7 1/8". 13907:19 - 13907:19
The British Transport Police Force has its roots very early in the history of the British police service. The earliest record of a railway police force pre-dates the formation of the Metropolitan Police (usually recognised as the first modern police force in England & Wales), by at least 4 years. No-one really knows just how many individual railway, dock and canal police forces existed in the 19th Century, but they probably numbered over a hundred. Largely unsung and in many cases, unremembered these early forces combined to form the modern BTP and give it one of the richest histories of any police force in Britain. This is a good condition, male Constable's / Sergeant's helmet of the British Transport Police. It has a blue serge 2 panel blue body, with a chromed rose boss and a British Transport Police Queen’s Crown (QE II) white metal helmet plate.

In 1965, the force had an establishment of 1,988 attested constables and an actual strength of 1,766, making it the third largest county force in Great Britain. Kent County Constabulary kept this name until the 1990s, when it changed its name to Kent Police, the last British force to keep the word "county" in its official title. Although still unpopular with many residents of Kent, the change was necessary as the large number of visitors coming through the channel tunnel and the ports would understand the word "Police" more readily than "Constabulary". This is a very good, male Constable's / Sergeant's helmet of the pre 1990's Kent Constabulary. It has a blue serge 2 panel blue body, with a chromed rose boss and a Kent Constabulary Queen’s Crown (QE II) helmet plate with red enamel centre.
