Glossary and Abbreviations

I'll add to this list as things come up but don't hesitate to leave a comment if you have any questions... There's a direct link to this post in the right hand sidebar.

B.C and B.C."I"  - British Constable and British Constable Intelligence

£P - the abbreviation used for the Palestine Pound the currency introduced under the British Mandate.  £P1 was made up of 1000mils

R.T.O. - Road Traffic Offence... even in the turmoil of the conflict the majority of policing activity was of a fairly mundane nature.

T.A.C. -  Temporary Additional Constable - local officers drawn predominantly from the Jewish community

Taggart or TegartConcrete fortress-style police stations designed by Sir Charles Tegart

In the diaries Ron refers to Rural and Urban denoting, obviously, different stations and the zones for which they were responsible.
