Now we have many blue plaques in Paddington in both W9 & W2 parts but this morning we had our first red plaque in W9 put up along Clifton Gardens this morning.
Here on the 13th of December in 1974, a horrific fire took hold in the Wosley Hotel for catering staff and cost the life of firemen, Hamish Petit along with six others. In honour of his life London Fire Brigade Union has put up this plaque. Acknowledging the ultimate sacrifice made by firemen in W9 and all around the world. So let us not forget the sacrifices public servants like firemen and women make particularly over the Christmas break.
