A collection of police items that were owned by the late John Webley. John was a Detective Sergeant in the Cardiff City Police and later South Wales Police.

Items show a mounted police truncheon complete with leather saddle scabbard, two pair of handcuffs, ratchet (Cardiff) and Victorian era pair which are stamped 'Glamorgan Constabulary'. The spurs and leather boot spur fittings were used by the mounted police unit of Cardiff City Police and likely to be from about 1900 - 1910.

The whistle and key are those which were issued to John in the 1950's when he joined the Cardiff City Police - the key being for a street located police box. There is also what is probably a Georgian / Victorian leather covered cosh.

All of the items were kindly donated to the Ross Mather Police Memorabilia of Wales Collection by his son Mark.
