A Wonderful Book Published by Sutton Leisure Services (1991)
Police Constables Were Tough Working-Class Men Who Stood for Hours (Without Moving) Like Disciplined Soldiers!
As Motor Vehicles Were Becoming Ever More Numerous – Police Constables Would Stand ‘To Attention’ on Street-Corners – Protecting the General Public!
Police Constables Would Walk Their ‘Beat’ Endlessly – Or Remain Ram-Rod Still on Street-Comers! Over Many Years of This Service Their Bodies would Develop All Kinds of Injuries! Mechanised Traffic-Lights Took the Place of Standing Police Constable in 1938!
