T2626. The Manchester Ship Canal Company had its own Dock Police Force, which was formed just before the opening of the Ship Canal. Officers' jurisdiction extended over the whole length of the waterway. The force operated until 1993, when it was replaced with a private security firm. A full view of the uniform can be seen in record T2620.
