Digitising Our History

Corps Security which was established in 1859 has retained archivist Dorota Pomorska-Dawid to catalogue documents relating to its history held by the London Metropolitan Archives (LMA).

LMA’s iconic collection includes letters from Florence Nightingale, former Prime Minister William Gladstone, and members of the British royal family – as well as information on former soldiers who have worked at Corps (including their family details, information about the regiments they served in, and service medals).

Pomorska-Dawid reports to Diz Sollesse, Corps Security’s archive custodian, and has been tasked with digitising records and artefacts so that they can be made available to historians and other people interested in the company’s history. The work is scheduled for completion by the autumn. Pomorska-Dawid previously undertook a similar project for the Guildhall School of Music, and has been with the LMA for 18 years.

The history of the “Corps of Commissionaires” (Corps Security’s previous name) will feature in “history of security” research which is being undertaken by Dr David Churchill’s, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at Leeds School of Law, with a view to co-authoring a booklet on the security company.

Mike Bullock, Corps Security’s CEO, says: “We are immensely proud of our 161-year history and Dorota and David’s work will enable us to share artefacts with all those interested in military history and Corps’ own past.”
