Default Abberline Memorabilia

Hi All,

Following on from the Pirnie thread, here's two more of Abberline's possessions which might turn up in the course of time.

On Abberline's promotion to Scotland Yard he was presented with a purse of gold and gold keyless hunting watch. On the watch was engraved "Presented together with a purse of gold to Inspector F.G. Abberline by the inhabitants of Spitalfields, Whitechapel etc, on his leaving the district after fourteen years of service as a mark of their esteem and regard".

On his retirement he was presented with a silver tea and coffee service. "The inscription on the silver salver, which accompanied the service, recorded the fact that for thirty years Mr. Abberline had been engaged in the honorable service of that department of our system which had for its object the detection of crime."

To the best of my knowledge the watch and tea service have never appeared at auction, so somebody must be polishing them regularly.

Regards,

Simon
