  • looking for a book on Dundee Police

    I was wondering if anyone could direct me in finding a copy of the book:
    City of Dundee Police 150th Anniversary: 1824-1974
    I have checked with Amazon.uk but they are sold out.
    My grandfather Will Brow was a Dundee policeman and I would very much like to find any books on the Dundee City Police to share with his daughther,my Mum.
    if anyone knows of any bookstores that may carry such titles please let me know and I will try to send for them. or anyone has any they would like to sell please let me know
    Thank you

    This is my country,
    The land that begat me,
    These windy spaces
    Are surely my own.
    And those who toil here
    In the sweat of their faces
    Are flesh of my flesh
    And bone of my bone.

    It appears to have been published by the Scottish Police Federation

    Try them.

            Book on dundee police.

            Having recently discovered this interesting website, I was pleasantly surprised to see the thread on the above subject!

            Have you PATRICIACB been able to obtain the hard copy you referred to in your message of 24th May 2009?

            I also am anxious to obtain the same book.

            My Grandfather Charles Davie born1857 was a member of the Dundee Police.

            Would any Forum Member know of an email address at Dundee Police where one could make contact, to see if there is still records in their archives about members of the Force during the period of my grandfathers employ?

              Patricia CB posts infrequently on here, usually when she is seeking info. Try sending her a PM and she may be able to tell you who she contacted - or use the link that Scotgait suggested, earlier in this thread.

              Good luck with your research.

                If you could send me your email address I will forward you the email sent to me by the very kind Officer which includes an attached copy of the book on pdf file. I saved it in my drafts and you can then read the book while looking for a hard copy Unfortunately I am still on the hunt for a hard copy, I'll keep you posted in case I find any.

                  Hello I have some fantastic news for anyone looking for said book, I have it ! I bought a copy from a Dundee book collector 1 year ago and was told it is the last MINT condition one left. I'm willing to sell it

                    No doubt you were told this because it would explain the fact they were probably charging you more than it was worth. I nearly bought a book under similar circumstances once, but fortunately left it and found exactly the same book in just as good a condition for considerably less and there's no prizes for guessing which of the two book sellers is most likely to get my business in the future! (In truth, I would still buy from either one!)

                    Your post now Laird Beharrie strikes me as a means to get a wee bit more than you paid for it. My advice to anyone is to consider your offer very carefully (especially if it is potentially available free). Obviously if anyone things the Laird is looking for a reasonable amount then they're free to buy this last MINT condition copy!

                      Hi thanks for your quick reply , I'm not looking to make any money for the book just get back what I paid for it . I bought the book as I am (was) an avid collector of Dundee police memrobelia but as me and my family have made a life changing plans to move to new York I think it's time for a change . I would rather the book went to someone who is really interested in it than it go to someone looking to make money .

                          dundee police book

                          I was sent the Dundee Police book by a very kind gentleman from Dundee area and for what I believe was a very reasonable price. it arrived in great shape and I was thrilled since it was for my Mum..her father was William Brow a Dundee Constable for years.
                          I think if anyone is looking for this book like I was from overseas whatever you are willing to pay is up to you. I was really pleased with my purchace.
                          Thank you to everyone that took an interest in my request I really appreciate it.
                          This is my country,
                          The land that begat me,
                          These windy spaces
                          Are surely my own.
                          And those who toil here
                          In the sweat of their faces
                          Are flesh of my flesh
                          And bone of my bone.
