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.
