1965 Mr Arthur Dennis of South Morden tanker pool, who received the highest award of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents—the Meritorious Service Medal—at a ceremony in Greenwich Town Hall, with Mayor of Greenwich, Councillor Mrs Julia Johnson, JP. Arthur saw a pony and cart bolting out of control down Rochester Way, Kidbrooke. Although he had no knowledge of horses, he ran alongside and grabbed one of the shafts, and was about to gather up the reins when he was thrown into the roadway. He then commandeered a passing car, got ahead of the pony and managed to bring it to a halt. (Express News Summer/Autumn)
