    This was my grandfather; his only son is still alive and lives in Sidcup. The name on the memorial is incorrect; he was Edwin Baker. I am sure it was him because I have his military records with his ID number. There was a memorial to him in the old Town Hall at Bethnal Green, which disappeared when the building became a private hotel. He was killed disposing of a bomb in Bootle, near Liverpool. He was due to be relieved of duty but the bombing raid disrupted the railway line; his replacement could not get through. My father remembers the officer in charge visiting to commiserate; his face was disfigured with earth from the blast.
