Inspector Charles Ledger

Post by Karen on Mon 27 Dec 2010 - 2:45

Inspector Charles Ledger appeared at the Kelly inquest to present his plan of the premises in Miller's Court. Here is his retirement announcement.

POLICE RETIREMENTS.

Yesterday Sub-divisional Inspector C. Mountifield, who for the past eight years had been in charge of the police in the Highgate and Upper Holloway subdivisions of the Y division, retired from the police force, after twenty-five years' service. He was in charge of police at the great dock and gas strikes, and was on duty at many notable public gatherings, including Trafalgar-square meetings and the Jubilee of the late Queen.

Inspector Charles Ledger, G reserve, well known in various parts of London, more especially in Peckham, St. Luke's, and Clerkenwell, has just retired from the Metropolitan police force after 27 years' service. During this time he has been instrumental in bringing many notorious criminals to justice, and on many occasions he has been commended by the judges. Inspector Ledger is a clever draughtsman, and executed the elaborate plans in connection with the "Ripper" murders in Whitechapel. An exceptional case of arson having been perpetrated in Lord Rowton's lodging-house at Vauxhall, and two others of the same nature subsequently occurring in Holborn and St. Luke's, Inspector Ledger set to work to find the culprit, and finally ran him to earth. The offender got 12 years' penal servitude. Inspector Ledger leaves the service with the respect and good wishes of all those with whom he has been associated.
