"Badges of Office" by M.B. Taylor and V.L. Wilkinson.
  Howard Ripley's book "Police Buttons" which appeared in 1983 provided a record of all police forces in Great Britain and Ireland. Since publication he has continued his research into this subject and this has enabled him to prepare a second volume. This result is a work featuring 268 clear line drawings of police buttons. Many of these illustrate the buttons worn by the small police forces in the early years of Queen Victoria's reign and which are now extremely rare.

The book is priced at £6 sterling

Postage and packaging is extra and the cost is shown below. Payment must be in Pounds Sterling, and all cheques to be made payable to PICA (GB).
