Hello, I'm Roy. My birthname is Rehman, which is also the name I use on the internet and for content attribution. I was born in Manama and have lived there for about a decade, before moving to my current location in Colombo, Sri Lanka. My interests include researching, photographing, writing about, and developing renewable energy (particularly solar and wind power), and limnology (i.e. dams and rivers), hence my work here on Wikipedia (and Commons) also mostly circles around these areas.

Things I enjoy include travelling, hiking, community work (cleanups, building/renovating schools, etc), building computers, star gazing, and most things in between. My real-life work experience includes banking, cybersecurity, and renewable energy. Outside content writing, I work on fixing infoboxes and navigation templates, attend to admin tasks on the English Wikipedia and Commons, and other related things. Wherever needed, I also help improve policy and guideline pages, as I strongly believe that these pages need to be very simple, clear, and up to date, particularly on rapidly growing sites like Wikipedia and Commons. If you require private admin assistance, I am willing to assist provided that they are uncontroversial.

If you are interested in, or are from Sri Lanka, do consider joining the Wikimedia Community User Group for Sri Lanka. It is the official Wikimedia usergroup for editors from Sri Lanka, regardless of language background or which Wikimedia project your are contributing to. Your assistance in spreading awareness of this group is also much welcomed. You may also join wish to join Wikimedia-LK, the usergroup's official mailing list.

Front page of The Illustrated London News, depicting the chase
Magazine depiction of the chase

The Tottenham outrage of 23 January 1909 was a theft of wages from the Schnurmann rubber factory in Tottenham, North London, followed by a two-hour, six-mile (10 km) police chase. The armed robbers, Paul Helfeld and Jacob Lepidus, killed themselves at the end of the pursuit. The bravery of the police led to the creation of the King's Police Medal, awarded to several of those involved in the pursuit. A joint funeral for the two shooting victims—Police Constable William Tyler and Ralph Joscelyne, a ten-year-old boy—was attended by a crowd of up to half a million mourners, including 2,000 policemen. The deaths exacerbated ill feelings towards immigrants in London, and much of the press coverage was anti-Semitic in nature; Helfeld and Lepidus were Jewish Latvian Socialists. Public sentiment was further inflamed the following year after another criminal act by Latvian immigrants, culminating in the Siege of Sidney Street, in which three policemen were murdered.
