The pub was destroyed by enemy action in early 1943. A bomber trying for the naval yards hit a school and the pub. John Leggett and all his staff were killed, and John's body was never found. The only survivor was the pub monkey, who then had to be destroyed as it went mad.

 

From the Woolwich Gazette, 16 February 1894.
