A Different Kind of Gentleman

"Mrs. Mary Couchman, a 24-year-old warden of a small Kentish Village, shields three little children, among them her son, as bombs fall during an air attack on October 18, 1940. The three children were playing in the street when the siren suddenly sounded. Bombs began to fall as she ran to them and gathered the three in her arms, protecting them with her body. Complimented on her bravery, she said, ‘Oh, it was nothing. Someone had look after the children.’"

"The Museum has been open in Woolwich for almost two centuries.

To close this wonderful and historic place forever, and to exile its matchless Collections to inaccessible obscurity, would be a local and national travesty.”

The petition is in early days, we could really use your help!

I want to be remembered when I’m dead. I want books written about me. I want songs sung about me. And then hundreds of years from now I want episodes of my life to be played out weekly at half past nine by some great heroic actor of the age.”
