This volume traces the evolution of the forces of the British Provost Marshal from the Restoration to the present day. Until the mid-19th century the Provost retained the power to punish (flog and hang), after which they became responsible for the supervision of the gaols. The harshness with which they tackled disciplinary problems during World War I led to their reputation falling to an all-time low. After re-organization and an exemplary performance during World War II, they were awarded the title of "Royal". Since then, the R.M.P have served in Korea, the Falklands and the Gulf War.
