HK Police Magazine 1956
Whilst trying to locate an old friend who used to be in the Marine Police (without success) I happened to come across a resource which I want to share with HK Police enthusiasts.
It seems that copies of the HK Police Magazine which must have been printed and circulated in 1956 have been digitized and kept by HKU.

It is a wonderful snap-shot of this period. The monthly articles include police news, points of law, Honours Lists, Sports results, articles about 'Home leave' and many more. There are detailed and complex instructions on how to measure curved road and pavements which were obviously very important for recording trafic accidents. There is an article called "Chatter from the Stations" which includes regional information, who is going on long leave etc. There are also some wonderful advertising inserts, which I presume helped off-set the cost of this publication - although I have no proof of that!
I hope you enjoy these pages as much as I have.
