Softcover. This book details those Policemen who have been killed on duty by a criminal act within the area now covered by the Thames Valley Police - namely the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. It ranges from the Constable who, in the 1860s, died in Oxford just days after the formation of one of the constituent forces that made up the present-day Thames Valley Police, and must surely be one of the shortest serving Policemen in this country, to the truly terrible day at Hungerford in the late 1980s, when so many people, including a traffic Constable, were murdered and others were wounded in that picturesque Berkshire town. It encompassses Police Officers encountering poachers, drunks, checking details of members of the visiting forces in wartime England, burglars and questioning vicious 'stop at nothing' criminals. These Police Officers all started their last day of duty as though they were going out on normal police work. Illus., Appendix, Index. 129pp. trade size softcover. F. with no creasing to covers.
