*The heroism and selflessness of fire professionals must always be honored and remembered.*


Services for Ladderman Harold F. Bishop, 46, of ladder company 2, Boston fire department, who died as a result of injuries suffered in an East Boston fire, Saturday, are being held today at his home, 33 Waverly street, Roxbury.

A detail of firemen serves as escort, and the members of ladder company 2 were excused to attend the services.

Bishop, who was appointed to the fire department Feb. 1, 1924, was a veteran of both world wars and had recently been discharged from the coast guard.

He leaves a widow, Mrs. Grace Bishop.
