PA350 Police Telephone System

The PA350 Police Telephone System was used in the area covered by the Metropolitan Police in London, UK.

The system used centralised switchboard that covered a pre-defined area with Posts strategically placed.

The Posts were designated Post PA No. 2 by the General Post Office (GPO) and rented to the Police.  Kiosks were owned and installed by the Police force and the GPO would supply the telephone equipment.

After the second world war the Police Systems were simplified and the Post PA No. 3 introduced.  This post was produced with thinner cast iron sections and no underground structure.
