Police Patrol Shot At by Soldiers on Rochester Bridge

The Times - Sunday, Aug 16, 1914.

A police patrol which was rowing in a boat across the River Medway was fired on by a guard of soldiers stationed on Rochester Bridge. It is stated that the police did not hear the challenge of the soldiers, who, on the other hand, could not see the occupants of the boat. No one was hit.
