The plaques are selected from all walks of life, and all points of the London compass – and I'm taking requests too!

The Burlington Arcade, built in 1819, links Piccadilly with Burlington Gardens and is one of the jewels in the crown of upmarket shopping in London.
But do be sure to behave yourselves when browsing for diamonds, luxury leather goods or exquisite timepieces.
As the plaque here testifies, the Arcade has its own police force in the shape of the Beadles – who were originally recruited from the 10th Hussars.
The Beadles are authorised to enforce the quirky bylaws of the arcade which include: No whistling, singing, playing of musical instruments, running, carrying of large parcels or opening of umbrellas and no babies’ prams.
Apart from that, have fun!
