Victoria: Admark Ltd., 1949. quarto (12" x 9"). Stapled Pictorial Wraps. Very Good 120 pp., illustrated throughout; table of contents near the end (p. 117) as customary with this publication; business/advertiser index by locale. Of particular interest in this issue: 'The Murder at Little Fort by Sub-Inspector George H. Clark'; 'Wartime Rangers in Peacetime Role'; 'Police in Rescue Role to Save Fliers'; 'Constable Hodges Receives D.F.C.'; 'Proficient Criminologist is Man of Many Human Qualities'; and 'Radar Clocks Speeders'. This last exemplifies the application of wartime technological advances post-WWII, and it may surprise many to learn of the use of radar in traffic control in 1949. This periodical was issued at this time only twice per year. The covers show light staining; the spine has tears at the head and the tail, and at a small area about 2 inches up from the base. Despite this wear, the binding remains tight; pages clean and bright with no internal marks or previous owner names. Scarce, especially in such condition.
