Our Colors

Our Colors

The navy blue steel reinforced topper. These hats were lined with steel hoops or bamboo. Needless to say these toppers were very cumbersome.The reason for the reinforcement was to save the Peeler from injury from objects being thrown from the windows above from residents not too happy with a force that was created by the government. The creation that some thought was against their rights to go about their business.
(And still do, to an extent today).
The thin blue line at the brim of the hat is our addition and represents what has been known through modern history as the Police being, the thin blue line between peace and anarchy.
The skull at the centre of the back patch represents the ultimate sacrifice made by a Law Enforcement officer. A police officer puts his or herself, in the way of danger to maintain the peace and stability of society. This penultimately can end by the officer putting their lives on the line to protect the public.The collar was made of rigid leather and was designed as another early safety feature in the Peeler’s uniform. This was introduced to the uniform to prevent the officer from being garrotted by angered members of public or criminals.The collar number was a means of identification which is still in use today. In modern day the numbers are displayed on the shoulder area. In our colors the number 16 is represented. The sixteenth letter in the alphabet being the letter “P”. Standing for Police or Peeler.
The black and white of our Rockers are there to symbolise the shifts that we work. Patrolling the streets day and night, rain or shine to the detriment of our bodies. Striving to keep the public and their properties safe and allowing them to go about there daily business unhindered.
We are the only LEMC club in the UK that have replaced the MC, LEMC cube to LE as part of our backpatch. There are different schools of thought on this issue. We do this to show that we are a 100% sworn police club. This is a thing of personal taste to us as a club. 
Our colours represent the beginnings of which led to the modern day Police service brought into effect by Sir Robert Peel the then home secretary in 1829.
“WE ARE WHAT WE ARE”, modern day Peelers……
