This website has been created using material from a PPOCA website originally created by Graham Jenkins. Administrative information has been updated and the history files expanded at the request of former BPPA chairman, John Kearney. Anthony Rae has generously provided the web hosting and domain name that was chosen by vote at the AGM. We are grateful to Keith Jenkins for providing the original PPOCA website files to BPPA and to Edward Horne, Esq. B.E.M.,who wrote the book, "A Job Well Done" and from which, with his kind permission, originally given to Graham Jenkins, material for the history of the Palestine Police has been taken.
The task of acknowledging all the material and the bibliography is going to be a massive one. I have been given so many photos by generous donors who unfortunately are more often than not completely at a loss to supply the name of the photographer. Luckily many photos were taken in that part of Mandated Palestine that is now Israel. Israeli law declares photos taken during the mandate era to come out of copyright fifty years after the photos were taken. This is a very different law to one now prevailing in most countries. I will put acknowledge known owners of photographs on the pages where the pages where the photos are displayed.
Many illustrations have been taken from the Mid East Website. Although those illustrations are copyright, Ami Isseroff , co-founder of the MidEast Web gave me permission long before his death to use his work where it was relevant. In return I supplied him with considerable information on Palestine during the mandate era that he had been unaware of. If I have used MidEast Web material that was not supplied by Ami, I would be very grateful if the people concerned would contact me. I would be even more grateful if they give me permission to continue using their material.
