'For Faithful Service’ - A History of the Special Constabulary Long Service Medal by T.P. Brewster

The unofficial medals and certificates issued by local and county authorities during and after the First World War are also listed. The history leading to the various issues of the long service medal awarded to the Ulster Special Constabulary is comprehensively covered. The author describes the unique case for the award of this medal to the Rhodesian Special Constabulary. Other chapters deal with the history of the Specials, the numbers of medals issued and associated ephemera.
