Event description

Description

The gruesome Houndsditch Murders in 1910 involved the killing of three unarmed policemen by an armed gang, and led to a national debate about the nature of policing, and whether or not the police should be armed. Join Peter Clarke for a short talk about the objects related to the incident, and reflect on its impact today, at a time when the debate about armed police officers is especially pertinent.
