Thames Valley Police force is trying to trace relatives of police officers from the area that they cover today and who served in the armed forces, including those who were killed, during the First World War.

They would also like to hear from anyone who has police-related photographs or other memorabilia for the area relating to the war.

We understand that the police service will commemorate the officers who were killed in the First World War at a ceremony and exhibition at the year's Thames Valley Police Open Day, held at the Force Training Camp at Sulhamstead on Saturday 2nd August.

If anyone can help or would like more information, contact 01865 846578 (Communications Service Desk).
