? Polariser with flash

I need to photograph a series of display panels which contains glossy photos and laminated sheets of text. I was planning to use my Nikon SB28 flash at 45 degrees with a diffuser fitted. Would the use of a polariser help, hinder or be un-neccessary?

If you can get a piece of polarizing sheet that will fit over the flash, use that at 90degrees polarity to the one on the lens and you can remove all reflections. It's called cross-polarisation. You lose 2-3 stops IIRC but the reflections will be gone.
