Sidney Miles

Murder Victim. He was the Police Constable who was shot by Christopher Craig, in the case which led to the execution of Derek Bentley. He was born at Eastry, near Sandwich in Kent, and had worked as a gardener before serving with the Royal Army Medical Corps between 1926 and 1929, when he joined the Metropolitan Police. He was commended three times for gallantry in effecting arrests. At the time of his death, he was forty-two years old. Unfortunately, there is no memorial to P.C. Miles, but his ashes were scattered beneath the fir tree in Square 299, to the North East of the sundial. (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine) Cause of death: Murdered (shot)
