Rochester Divison Kent Constabulary Victorian Police Presentation Truncheon, Hand Decorated Constable 88. Sn 14331 - 14331
A Victorian (V.R. C.1837-1850) Police Presentation Truncheon, Hand Decorated to Kent Constabulary, Rochester Division. Following the introduction of the Metropolitan Police in 1829 one of the next pieces of legislation enabling the formation of a police force was the Municipal Corporations Act of 1835. The result of this reform was to allow 178 boroughs to form a watch committee, which in turn had to establish and supervise a local police force. The Kent County Constabulary became operational on 20 May 1857 with 222 officers, and truncheons from this period are rare. The example shown is decorated with a crown over a script ‘VR’ cipher and inscribed ‘KENT’ in the cartouche. This truncheon is made from hard wood and is painted black above the grips where the hand painted decoration has been applied. It is hand decorated and varnished. The truncheon has the Queens Crown at the top in red, gold, black and white. Below this is "VR" in gold and there is a gold cartouche below this with "Kent" in gold on a red background. Below this it has "Rochester Div. 18". The truncheon has a multi grooved grip which is shaped. This is a very nice truncheon. The truncheon measures 18 1/2" long. The price includes Uk delivery.

Victorian Wooden Two Piece Pacifier / Cosh With Leather Wrist Strap. Pol 399 - Pol 399
Victorian wooden two piece Pacifier / Cosh / Life Preserver. The Victorian era saw the populations in cities having to protect themselves from criminals and was a commonly carried life preserver.

Press gangs would roam the streets of inns and taverns looking for the slightly worse for wear. Imagine enjoying a night out and waking up, hung over, finding yourself an involuntary volunteer at sea, on board one of the Navy's finest ships. This pacifier is made from dark coloured wood and has the cosh end attached by a thick stitched leather strap. The bulbous cosh head is not weighted and the leather strap is pinned to it with 4 steel pins and copper washers. The handle is turned with grooves at the grip end. It measures 21 3/4" overall. The price includes UK delivery. Pol 399
