Poole, Alice Kate

Alice Kate Poole

Name: Alice Kate Poole

Wounded on: Thursday, 24th September 1942

Wounded at: 61 Warrior Square, St Leonards

Additional Information: Alice Poole, aged 65, was wounded when seven fighter bombers swept into St Leonards strafing with machine gun fire and dropping HE bombs on Warrior Square, West Hill, St Leonards, Quarry Hill and De Cham Road. 23 people were killed in the attack, with 43 other wounded, 21 seriously.

Alice was the daughter of George Poole. The date of death on the grave stone also differs to the date stated on CWGC records, so it is possible she died of wounds on 3rd October 1942.
