Signed in bold blue or black fountain pen inks. Together with a selection of small signed cards, pieces, printed book images etc., by various other police officers including Frederick R. Cherrill (1892-1964, Chief Superintendent of the Fingerprint Bureau at New Scotland Yard), Ranulph Bacon (1906-1988, Assistant Commissioner 'A', Metropolitan Police 1961-63, Assistant Commissioner 'C', Metropolitan Police 1963-66 and Deputy Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis 1966), Robert Fabian (1901-1978, English police officer, a Detective Superintendent in the Metropolitan Police known as 'Fabian of the Yard'; 2), Richard Jackson (1902-1975, British police officer who served as Assistant Commissioner 'C', Metropolitan Police 1953-63 and as President of Interpol 1960-63; 2) and Edgar Lustgarten (1907-1978, British broadcaster and noted crime writer who hosted Scotland Yard from 1953-61). Generally VG, 8 The Hammersmith nude murders was the name given to a series of six murders in West London in 1964 and 1965. The victims, all prostitutes, were found undressed in or near the River Thames, leading the press to nickname the killer 'Jack the Stripper'. Despite 'intense media interest and one of the biggest manhunts in Scotland Yard's history' the case remains unsolved. Two of the murdered prostitutes were believed to have been peripherally connected to the Profumo Affair of 1963 and the suspects included British light heavyweight boxing champion Freddie Mills.
