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.
