The Second World War & Korean War - Rolls of Honour

There are three BTPHG Roll of Honour pages. This one, another covering the Officers lost in the Line of Duty, and a third page covering the First World War.

During the Second World War hundreds of railway and dock police officers were called up for service, their jobs being taken over by Special Constables, many recruited from within the railway industry. These Rolls of Honour list those former officers who subsequently gave their lives for their country during the Second World War and the Korean War.

On the home front, several police officers were killed whilst they were on duty and engaged in air raid duties. These officers are remembered in the British Transport Police Roll of Honour (Line of Duty), the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website as “Civilian War Dead”, and they are also included in the National Police Officers Roll of Honour and Remembrance. Serving railway and dock police officers killed in air raids while off duty are included in this Second World War Roll of Honour. Retired police officers killed in air raids are not recorded.

It is intended to update and add to this list when further information becomes available. Please send any additions, amendments or comments to:
