Ex Detective Inspector Clive Driscolls excellent book “In Pursuit of the Truth”   raises many questions. The Mail gave their take on his book . I blogged about his information on Lambeth  Lambeth Part 4 – Clive Driscoll The Truth about Child Sexual Abuse in Lambeth.
Another victim’s story from Operation Middleton the police decided to shelve was “Vicki’s”. They shelved it as they thought the description of the area did not match the real description.
The story was that children were released with a head start and hunted with dogs. Vicki survived but others did not.
Clive investigated and proved it did match but the area had changed in the interim.
The police found body parts but there was no investigation! Evidence also had “gone missing”. More evidence just “vanished” from the police investigators desk…Vicki killed herself. That saved the police having to investigate.
So who are the Catholic Guild?
I have no idea if this is the organisation that Clive was given a tie for. I have no idea if this is the organisation who used funny hand signals in meetings with Clive about Lambeth childrens homes.
However the Met do have an overwhelming influence upon the Catholic Police Guild as 7 of their last 8 chairman have been from the Metropolitan Police 
Food for thought.
Please note that victims of abuse may be triggered by reading this information. The Sanctuary for the Abused [A] has advice on how to prevent triggers. National Association for People Abused in Childhood [B] has a freephone helpline and has links to local support groups. Other useful sites are One in Four [C] and Havoca [D]. Useful post on Triggers [E] from SurvivorsJustice [F] blog. Jim Hoppers pages on Mindfulness [G] and Meditation [H] may be useful.

Appendix 1 – Wikipedia entry for Catholic Police Guild
The Catholic Police Guild (CPG) of England & Wales was founded in 1914 as the Metropolitan and City Catholic Police Guild. This was an association for Catholic Police men and women, and approved by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Westminster, in response to representations made by Catholics serving in the Metropolitan and City of London Police Forces. The Patron Saint of the Catholic Police Guild is Saint Michael, the Archangel.
The CPG has a Constitution and Rules approved by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, and a National Executive Committee elected by members each year. The NEC invites a member to act as Chairman and may also select a President, who serves a three-year term.
In 1974 the Guild became a national association with membership open to Police Officers serving in the Police Forces in the rest of England and Wales. More recently membership has been opened up to Police Staff & Police Community Support Officers. The CPG also has a Friends category of membership for other civilian supporters. The Guild has had a significant resurgence over the last couple of years. It is particularly experiencing growth in the North-West of England.
The Guild undertakes bi-annual pilgrimages to various important holy places, including Rome, the Holy Land, Fátima, Portugal, Santiago de Compostella in Spain and Poland. In 1985 the Guild went on pilgrimage to Rome to celebrate its seventieth year of foundation, and were addressed by Pope John Paul II on Friday, 12 April 1985.
CPG members often help with stewarding duties at Westminster Cathedral, and every October, Guild members carry the statue of Our Lady in procession from Westminster Cathedral to Brompton Oratory on behalf of the Rosary Crusade of Reparation. Both in 1982 with the visit of Pope John Paul II and in 2010 with the visit of Pope Benedict XVI, the Catholic Police Guild assisted with stewarding. In 1982, Michael Jeffers, a Chief Superintendent in the Metropolitan Police as well as the Chairman of the Guild, was made a Knight of St Gregory by Cardinal Basil Hume in recognition of his efforts leading the stewarding.
