Site of the Alexandra Hotel

While in London a while back we popped along to somewhere important in the history of the AAGB. No26&27 Knightsbridge is the former site of Alexandra Hotel. On the night of 10th May 1941, a single high explosive bomb tore through the roof of the hotel, detonating in the foyer. While we may never know quite how, officer ensign Marjorie Stewart Butler was killed in this attack at this site. From the site we then went and laid a cross on the women at war memorial in her memory.
