World War One Centenary
Of the 330 police officers from the Thames Valley forces who served on the front line during the First World War, 49 died.
With 4 August 2014 being 100 years to the day since Britain declared war on Germany, Thames Valley Police Museum has published a web section dedicated to those officers who fought, and died, in service of their country.
They are listed according to which of the eight forces in existence they served at the time.
Today, of course, those eight forces are now represented under one Force - Thames Valley Police.
Ode of Remembrance
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”
