HISTORY The Corps of Commissionaires was founded in London in 1859 by Captain Sir Edward Walter KCB (1823-1904), a retired officer of the 8th Hussars, as a way to provide gainful employment for ex-servicemen on return from the Crimean War. As a result of this, Corps Security is the oldest security company in the world and the head of the company has always been the reigning British Monarch. This tradition began with Queen Victoria and continues through to the present day with Queen Elizabeth II. Initially The Corps was utilized to protect financial houses in The City of London, which at the time was the world’s commercial capital, operating with the motto `loyalty, integrity, service’. Its reputation grew quickly and by 1880 was operating in London, Belfast and Liverpool, employing over 1000 men. By 1884 The Corps was established in Sydney and operations in Melbourne and Perth soon followed. Canada was the next destination in 1925 and finally our very own PNG operation began in 1996. In 2008 The Corps of Commissionaires changed to its current name of Corps Security. On 9th June 2009, Corps Security celebrated its 150th anniversary with a reception hosted at St. James’s Palace by HM Majesty The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. The event was attended by our current General Manager, Dale Gilchrist and five former employees. Their priority is – and always has been – the security, safety and wellbeing of our clients’ people, property and assets. They are proud of their rich heritage and endeavour to combine the experience of the past with needs of the present to gain an unrivalled level of service that always delivers satisfaction. Its why their clients stay with them and their employees are proud to work for them.
