Patrick Joseph Malone was my grandfather. He was killed 6 years before I was born. His death devastated the family. He was written up in the paper as "Smiling Paddy Malone". I miss him, even though I never met him. I have several pictures of him in uniform, and have his "billy club" sitting on my desk, with a small brass tag on it with his badge number - 5229. God rest your soul grandfather - you were missed. I can provide a picture if the site would like it.
