HC Deb 10 May 1923 vol 163 c2590W

asked the Home Secretary the police regulations governing the saluting of military officers and regimental royal colours by police officers on duty in uniform?


The Metropolitan Police General Orders at present provide that all ranks are to salute the King's Colour when displayed by troops marching. Sergeants and constables in uniform are to salute commissioned officers of the Army, Navy, Air or Auxiliary Forces when in uniform, but this is subject to the proviso that men engaged in regulating traffic, etc., are not expected to salute unless spoken to. The orders are at present under revision.
