AUCTION CATALOGUE: FROM CONSTABLE TO COMMISSIONER SIR ROBERT MARK COMMISSIONER OF THE METROPOLITAN POLICE 1972-1975 INTRODUCTION

My father was given many awards and gifts during his time as the Commissioner of the Metropolis. As time passed almost everything in his house, such as china, cutlery, ornaments and pictures, had a plaque on it! As the last surviving member of the Mark family comprising Robert, Kathleen, Christopher and Christina, I have inherited many items of both personal and historical interest. I have kept some of them as a welcome and loving reminder of my father’s most remarkable career ; however there are thirty items that I propose to send to auction, to raise funds for an annual bursary to be given to an officer from the Metropolitan Police Service demonstrating integrity. This is the word that is used most often when people talk to me about my father, both in his personal and his public life. He was an open and an honourable man and because he demonstrated these qualities so well he became a very highly regarded one as well. The items in this auction bear witness to his standing, not only as a highly prominent figure in twentieth century history but also as an inspiration to the police service today.
