Default City of London Precincts and Divisions involved in the Investigation

Hello, all!

So, I'm in the process of attempting to recreate a Constable's uniform for the period, City of London, preferably. However, as some of you might be aware, precinct and division numbers are important in this process. Was hoping someone here might be able to help me in identifying something that would be appropriate.

My sources here say that "A" Division of CiL police was involved in the investigation, but I can find neither hide nor hare of "precinct" numbers that might be involved, and I can't confirm without question that "A" Division was the involved force with what I have, at the moment. I know that the CiL is rather small, but I assume there would at least be some sort of precinct numbering system in place.

Can anyone help? I'd be most grateful. Just trying to find the appropriate numbers and letters so that my uniform is correct in that regard. I realize part of this is picking a warrant/badge number.

-Alex

By “CiL” I assume you mean City of London Poiice, yes?

Their divisions were numbered in 1888, the Met had letters.

Thank you, Monty. Did indeed mean City of London. Was a rough morning. I don’t suppose you’d know which divisions were involved?

I think you'll find that he does know Mithras

For anything '19th century London Police' related Monty is definitely the go-to person. The book reflects that.
