This photo comes from the BTP Collection and was recently rediscovered by Ed Thompson. Ed says “The photo is printed on card on the reverse it reads ‘Railway Police New Street Station Birmingham. Taken in the 1920’s. Joseph Twentyman is second left, back row.’

History Group records show a J. Twentyman, who was then based at Carlisle, being awarded his Long Service and Good Conduct medal in 1954. Birmingham New Street  had a London and North Western and Midland Railways Joint Police Station until 1923, when both railway companies were merged into the London Midland and Scottish.

Just one photo from our Constituent Forces photo gallery.
