RARE, 1910 London & North Western Railway (LNWR) Crewe Police Detective’s Presentation Lignum Vitae Tropical Hard Wood Truncheon With Engraved Presentation Plate To Mr J.C. Morris. Sn 17480 - 17480
The London & North Western Railway was formed on 16 July 1846 by the amalgamation of the Grand Junction Railway, London and Birmingham Railway and the Manchester and Birmingham Railway. This move was prompted, in part, by the Great Western Railway's plans for a railway North from Oxford to Birmingham. The company initially had a network of approximately 350 miles (560 km), connecting London with Birmingham, Crewe, Chester, Liverpool and Manchester. In 1923, it became a constituent of the London, Midland and Scottish (LMS) railway, and, in 1948, the London Midland Region of British Railways: the LNWR is effectively an ancestor of today's West Coast Main Line. This is an excellent original wooden Police Presentation Truncheon to a Detective of The Crewe LNWR Police.
