Our recent blog post showed you pictures of the unveiling of a memorial stone  in tribute to Corporal Alfred Drake, which children of Ben Jonson attended.

Our school has received a lovely letter from members of Cpl Drake’s family thanking school and especially the children for their contribution to this event.

If you would like to find out more about Corporal Drake, his heroic act and his connections to Stepney and Ben Jonson school, follow the link below to read the article published by East End Life:
