: Joseph Stuart Espey, born in South Africa, joined the South African Police in 1933 and later served with the Northern Rhodesia Police. For a period in the 1940s he worked for the civil service as a public prosecutor, then returned to the Northern Rhodesia Police until his retirement in 1962. From starting as a mounted trooper in the police, he rose to become Senior Superintendent. The film in this collection shows the Northern Rhodesian police at work and play, and includes a trip to Tanganyika, the visit by Lord Louis Mountbatten, and Senior Superintendent Espey's own retirement parades.
