Railway Wooden Police Truncheon, London & Brighton. A quite magnificent item of considerable rarity. Almost 19 in length, it bears the large, Victoria Crown emblem at the top with 'LBR' in large, script lettering beneath. At the bottom of the shaft is the word 'Constable' within a wreath. The base of the handle has a small painted '69'. The usual LBR Truncheons have the crest and company name in full, this example is considerably more scarce than those. The London & Brighton Railway was opened between Norwood Junction and Brighton in May 1840 and amalgamated with the London & Croydon Railway to form the LBSCR in July 1846. Therefore, this Truncheon is easy to date as 1840-46. Extremely good condition throughout.
