Radnorshire Constabulary at War

Great War - Mini Exhibition

Radnorshire Constabulary group

As part of our ongoing project to collect and research the impact of World War One on Presteigne, our second mini exhibition focuses on the effect of the Great War on the Radnorshire Contabulary.

Despite exemption from service, in 1915 Chief Constable Bromfield enlisted to fight, joined by five of his constables. Come and find out their tale and the effects it had on the police force they left behind.

 

Admission to this is free.
