    Notes 
    • An Arthur Reginald Minter was one of three police officers sued in London in 1941 for wrongful imprisonment by an Australian company director. The case was reported in The Mercury of Hobart, Tasmania and can be read at http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article25847809.

      It's not clear whether the Arthur Reginald Minter concerned was the one born in 1895 at St Pancras but given he was definitely in the Met Police, it probably was.
