Repro ID: H3769
Description: During the Blitz on in the port districts, the police were often the first point of contact for the bereaved, for those searching for missing relatives, or for families made homeless by the bombing. As well as carrying out their usual anti-crime duties, the police also monitored the rationing laws and surpressed the 'Black Market'.
