Silvertown firemen

Group  To 19/1/1917

Categories: Armed Forces

At least two firemen from the Silvertown Fire Station responded to the fire at the TNT factory across the road. They lost their lives when that fire led to the Silvertown Explosion. The plaque refers also to firemen's families, which suggests that some of the firemen lived close to the station, within the range of the destruction caused by the explosion.
