On Saturday 29 April the bravery of Wallington war hero 2nd Lieut. Alfred Oliver Pollard was remembered at a special ceremony starting at the Wallington Library Memorial Garden.

A commemorative paving stone, provided by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), will be laid by Mayor of Sutton Cllr Richard Clifton to mark the centenary of the action for which A. O. Pollard was awarded the Victoria Cross (VC) – the highest honour that can be awarded to a British soldier.
