Artifact of the Week. Courtaulds’ Police badge

Did you know that Courtaulds’ Canada had its own police force?

This badge confirms that they did.

It was donated to the Museum by Ranson Ledoux after Courtaulds closed in Cornwall.



  1. Very curious about their role. Were there concerns about theft? I certainly hope they weren’t monitoring staff. They may have been the human equivalent of the security cameras of our day.
