Watts Memorial to Heroic Self Sacrifice


Recommended Posts

On the above memorial there is the following:- Alfred Smith, Police Constable, who was killed in an air raid while saving women and girls. June 13 1917.

Can anybody enlighten me to what incident this refers to? The memorial is in Postman's Park, City of London.
