Smeaton's Tower lives on Plymouth Hoe. It is a landmark known all over the world. But did you know it was once vandalised by the violent suffragists? In 1913, Winston Churchill came to visit Plymouth to inspect the Navy, and violent suffragists wrote "To Churchill. No security till you give women votes, no matter how big the navy". They also wrote "To save the state from shipwreck, give women the vote!". The violent suffragists also tried to blow up Smeaton's Tower with a bomb in date. Thankfully they weren't very good at making bombs and it didn't go off.
