Heroic Self Sacrifice ~ Postman's Park

To commemorate that this blog has now had 100,00 readers, I would like to dedicate this post to those who heroically gave their lives in the selfless act of attempting to save others. 

Not far from St.Paul's Cathedral is a quiet little place called Postman's Park. I had wanted to visit this relatively little known memorial ever since I heard about it. It is dedicated to all of those heroic, often ordinary people who have given their own lives in order to save the lives of others. I think that their brave deeds makes them extraordinary people and it's so good to this memorial devoted to them. 
Click on the bold type names below each plaque to read more about their heroic acts ~ some may be grouped together so please continue to scroll down. With many thanks to Caroline's Miscellany blog for all her research.
