Subject: [WZL] Sir Howard Vincent's Police Code - Resource for Victorian / Edwardian gaming


I've put the complete text of Sir Howard Vincent's Police Code on my
web site. It's the 15th (1912) edition of a compact guide to law,
conduct, etc. for London policeman, by the man who founded Scotland
Yard's CID (Criminal Investigation Department). It was used as a
reference by all of the UK's police forces, and adapted to many
Commonwealth forces. It should be useful to anyone researching or
writing about the UK police or gaming in this period, and much of it
undoubtedly applies to British police forces from the Victorian era
well into the 1920s-30s. To make it easier to use I've adapted the
index which now has several THOUSAND links to entries, and put several
hundred links into the text.

POLICE CODE AND GENERAL MANUAL OF THE CRIMINAL LAW BY SIR HOWARD VINCENT, K.C.M.G., C.B. FIFTEENTH EDITION. 1912

I've had a lot of help correcting this, but undoubtedly some OCR and
formatting errors etc. remain, if you spot anything that looks wrong
please let me know.
