Victorian Scottish Bowling Police Constabulary (West Dunbartonshire) Ebonised Wood Tipstaff Truncheon With Hand Painted Decoration & V.R. Royal Cypher. Sn 19413 - 19413
Bowling (Scots: Bowlin, Scottish Gaelic: Bolan) is a village in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland, It lies on the north bank of the Firth of Clyde, between the towns of Clydebank and Dumbarton. It is 11R60;2 miles west of Old Kilpatrick which is at one end of the Antonine Wall and therefore represents the extreme limit of the Roman Empire on the west coast of the island of Great Britain. Bowling has been long associated with shipbuilding and ship repairing. The opening of the Forth and Clyde canal at Bowling in 1790 increased the number of vessels passing through the small village on their way to Glasgow. In the 17th century, Scottish towns & cities used to hire watchmen to guard the streets at night, augmenting a force of unpaid citizen constables. Circa 1800 Official Police Constabularies were formed in Scotland. Policing of Dumbartonshire is presently performed by The Police Service Of Scotland. The earliest record of the Tipstaff (Warrant Stick) was in the 14th century. The name derives from the early origins of Policing when Warranted Officers would apprehend a criminal with the help if necessary of a tipped staff. The staff would be made of wood or metal and were not only a means of self defence but the tips of the staffs would bear symbols of their authority. Modern Police Truncheons originated from these Tipstaffs. This is an excellent original Victorian Bowling Police Tip Staff / Truncheon. The shaft is made of ebonised wood tapered and shaped for grip. The staff measures 14 ½” length. It has painted decoration featuring a Crown and Royal Cypher ‘V.R’ (Victoria Regina) above ‘1 Bowling’ (Police District). All of the staff’s Gold and Red decoration is clear. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 19413
