יעקב גרנק (דב)
פרק את מקלעו של השוטר הבריטי שישב במשוריין שחנה בפתח הבנק.
גרנק ירה לעבר משוריין שני שהתקרב מכיוון רחוב אחד העם כשהוא מחפה על הלוחמים הנסוגים כשחלק מהשלל בידיהם.

At this site, on 26.9.1947, the Lehi underground conducted a raid to seize cash needed to finance its operations.
The commander of the operation,
Yaakov Granek (Dov),
disarmed the British policeman who was sitting in an armored vehicle parked in front of the bank.
Granek then shot at another armored vehicle that approached from the direction of Ahad Ha’am Street, thereby providing cover for his comrades who were retreating with some of the loot in their hands.
