On the Beat

My latest completed proofreading project for Pen & Sword Books was a history of the forerunners of the British Transport Police (BTP), the time period being the nineteenth century. The author, Malcolm Clegg, has carried out considerable research to bring together the story of those individual police forces, set up by the domestic private railway companies to look after their respective systems. Over a period of time, these forces came together into what today is the modern BTP. A generous quantity of rare illustrations back up the informative text and the result is an interesting story, highlighting a vital part of the safe running of the railway system.
