1877 Police Gathering


Police Gathering.

– On Friday the members of the police force stationed at Mitcham were, thanks to the energies of the Vicar and Mrs. Wilson, entertained at tea in the school room, Killick-lane. The policemen were accompanied by their wives and friends, and the gathering, which we understand is to be made an annual one, passed off to the satisfaction of all present.

The postmen, we are told, are to be similarly treated shortly.
