Emmeline Pankhurst is well known as the leader of the Suffragette movement, but her connection with and arrest in Bull Point, Plymouth in 1913 is less well known.
Derek Tait gives an account of the event, read an extract below or visit to Derek’s website: https://tinyurl.com/y9ypyrcc
“The tender on which the police had embarked unnoticed, at a Devonport quay, proceeded on leaving the Majestic, not to the Great Western Docks, Plymouth, the usual place for ocean passengers to land, but steamed up the Hamoaze about three miles to Bull Point, the Government explosives depot for Plymouth Naval Station. There were in waiting two motor-cars. One was entered by Mrs. Pankhurst and her friend, the Chief Constable, and a Scotland Yard officer, and in the other travelled the Plymouth police matron and four police-constables.”
