What is R.S.A.D.P. London?
« on: Saturday 17 October 20 12:18 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

I have been looking at a couple of criminal records in Wales in 1894 where in one of the last columns it lists where there prisoner intended to reside upon release and a couple of entries had to R.S.A.D.P. London.

Does anyone know what this may have meant?
