About the memorial: Two wooden boards with the names of 386 officers of the Metropolitan Police and City of London Police who had died in the Great War. These were originally displayed at the Police War Memorial Hospital at Twickenham (WMO/259938). After the hospital was demolished, the boards were moved to storage, where they rotted. The surviving fragments are at the Metropolitan & City Police Orphans Fund's offices. Replica boards were made in 2005 and are on display at Hendon (WMO/281758).
