My first day at the Metropolitan Police academy was on December 28, 2015. My class had to pick a fallen officer that we would commemorate and I decided that we choose you because our first day in 2015 was unfortunately your last day in 1934. Six months later I graduated the academy and the serial number on the back of my badge was 1934. We got the watch from here. Thank you for your service.
