I have a correction to make in relation to an entry made in my book City of London at War – 1939-45. The entry in the book for Edgar John Whitehead states that he lived at 66 Clayton Road, Peckham, London with his wife, Alice Whitehead. Alice was in fact his mother’s name. Edgar’s wife was Joyce Whitehead (nee Walker). My sincere apologies for the error. The entry also shows that I was unable to establish exactly where Edgar was buried. I have now been informed that he was in fact buried on 16 January 1941, at Bromley Hill Cemetery, grave No. 173, section G.
My thanks to Richard Whitehead from East Victoria Park, Western Australia, for the above information.
Edgar was a City of London Policeman , collar number B.64, who was stationed at Snow Hill Police Station, and was killed during an air raid on the city by the German Luftwaffe.
