It was pointed out to me that
we really didn't have anything on the Police, Fire or Legal system in Scotland.
I guess that is in part because the books I had previously looked at doing
contained not only considerable quotes in the old Scots language but also
considerable legal terms and all in all making it a difficult ocr'ing
project. Thanks to work done to scan in old books several of these
books are now available in the Internet archive and so I have availed myself
of this resource to make available a few books on these subjects.
