Beat Alterations which you may recognise.

Post 1888 (89 to 91, I cant recall the exact date as Rob, John and myself were rushing to leave and I forgot to note it).

Taken from Police Orders for Bishopsgate Police station.

Thank you Neil.

These are City police records, in case anyone confused them with the Met.

Thanks again Neil...

They seem to have wanted Mitre Square and surroundings to be patrolled by one lone policeman, rather than the "split" as previously

Perhaps this was to prevent someone dodging between the two patrols, ie hiding near the Mitre St entrance when Harvey looks from the end of Church Passage and moving to Church Passage when Watkins enters from Mitre St

Default keep 'em guessing

Hello Neil. Thanks.

I suppose it kept potential miscreants guessing?

Cheers.
