New Publication - Wiltshire Constabulary
We have recently published our largest publication "Wiltshire Constabulary Police Officers Appointed 1839-1927".
At 523 pages it is only available in print, on CD as a download through GENfair.
It is a transcript of original records held at the Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre, supported by two indexes; one by name and the other by police number. Wiltshire Constabulary re-issued its numbers as they became available.
