  • UK/Commonwealth police terminology question

    What exactly was/is a Field Force/Mobile Unit/Special Service Unit in British or Commonwealth police force, especially back in the colonial era?

    Ive noticed that alot of former British colonies in the Caribbean have a "Special Service Unit" in their police force? Is it like a SWAT team?

    None of the names are familiar to me I'm afraid. That said, my bosses change the names so often, my lot could have been officially renamed the "Special Service Unit" months ago and I wouldn't have learned about it.
    I'm a little bit waayy, a little bit wooah, a little bit woosh, I'm a geezer.

      During the 50's and '60's, the Royal Malaysian Police had a unit called Field Force. They were essentially infantry companies manned by Police Officers and were tasked with fighting Communist terrorists during that country's Communist insurgency.
      It was a bright, cold day in April and the clocks were striking thirteen.
