Leeds City Police Force. A memorial plaque was unveiled in Leeds Town Hall on Friday 2nd November 1923 by the Lord Mayor of Leeds Frank Fountain. It remembered the 29 men from the force who gave their lives. A memorial plaque was to be placed in one of the wards in Leeds General Infirmary. The main memorial took form of a bed for perpetuity in the hospital. A cheque for a £1000.00 was handed to the hospital from the Lord Mayor. £900.00 been raised by the city's force and the other £100.00 being donated by the police cricket club. I wonder if the bed is still used and if the tablet exists.
