Coastguards and civilians of Leysdown, Isle of Sheppey

Commemorative postcard, Heroes All! Five brave coastguards and two civilians of Leysdown, Isle of Sheppey, Kent, who rescued 20 members of the 2nd Walworth Boy Scouts Troop who got into difficulties when their training vessel, a 32 foot ex-naval cutter, was hit by a sudden squall and capsized. Sadly, nine Sea Scouts died. There were 23 Sea Scouts, the Scout Master and five helpers on board. The tragedy was widely reported in newspapers at the time. A Memorial was erected in 1914 in Nunhead Cemetery.
4 August 1912

WW2 greetings card, Corporal Joan Pearson Featured Print

WW2 greetings card, Corporal Joan Pearson

WW2 greetings card, Corporal J.D.M. Pearson, official war picture by Laura Knight, official war picture from the National Gallery. The message inside reads: When an aircraft crashed near her quarters at a Royal Air Force Station, Corporal Pearson rushed out and, although the aircraft was burning and she knew that there were bombs aboard, she stood on the wreckage, roused the severely injured pilot, who was stunned, and assisted him to get clear, releasing his parachute harness in doing so. When he was on the ground, a 120 pound bomb went off about 30 yards away. Corporal Pearson at once threw herself on the top of the pilot to protect him from the blast and splinters. Her prompt and courageous action undoubtedly helped to save the pilots life. Joan Daphne Mary Pearson (1911-2000) was awarded the Empire Gallantry Medal (EGM), later to become the George Cross, for her heroism. Date: circa 1942
