Police Sergeant S G Auger directs traffic in the High Street in Wotton-under-Edge. In the background can be seen the Tolsey Clock, on the corner of High Street and Market Street. The original caption states that Wotton's regular police force consists of a Sergeant and two Constables (there are also 22 wartime Specials). "Police come under a County Standing Joint Committee consisting of half County Councillors, half Magistrates. There are six Divisions in the County; Wotton's Sergeant's station is in D Division".
