BTP History Writer Scheme

Over the years a number of people have made a significant and valuable contribution towards documenting BTP history. The History Group believes it would be appropriate to recognise these contributions by conferring an informal ‘title’. This is intended as a simple recognition of good work done. It may  include, but is not limited to, members of the Group, and not necessarily to people still living – W.O. Gay, one-time BTP Chief Constable who wrote copiously about our history is one example. J.R. Whitbread who wrote The Railway Policeman is another.

Recipients of the title “BTP History Writer” will be appointed by the Group’s Trustees and President.  Nominations should reflect worthy contributions and are invited from any BTPHG member or retired BTP member of staff. By email please to

UPDATE: June 2012
The first BTP History Writers have been selected. Go to the BTP History Writer page for full details!
