For 175 years, men and women of the
Metropolitan Police have helped to safeguard London. In peacetime and in war,
they have frequently risked their own lives to protect the citizens of the
capital. Sadly, not all those who earned medals survived to collect them.
Jane Lawrence’s book records the many acts
of gallantry through the years and the awards earned and gazetted, which range
from the British Empire Medal to the George Cross. Details are also included of
other medals earned including those awarded by The Royal Humane Society and the
Carnegie Hero Fund.
The book also contains details of many
notorious events including the murders committed by Dr. Crippen and by Ruth
Ellis, the last woman to be hanged for murder.
The author is a serving police officer with a long and distinguished record and the Foreword is written by Sir John Stevens, Commissioner of Police for the London Metropolitan force.
