Notice 2019/07 Thurs. 4 April 2019 - Memorial Plaque to Cadets Lost at Sea in WW2W

Memorial Plaque to Cadets Lost at Sea in WW2 - Roger Holt

As you may know there were three plaques located in the foyer to the Library in the Mountbatten Building on the WMA upper site, namely The Roll of Honour, Captain G W Wakeford and HMS Tormentor plaques. Due to the impending redevelopment of the upper site and with permission from Solent University, the plaques have all been removed from the foyer and are now in safe keeping in readiness for re-siting. The Roll of Honour Plaque which was was presented by the Warsash Association in 1991, can be viewed here >> Roll of Honour Plaque (Login first).

Subject to Diocese approval, the Roll of Honour Plaque will be re-sited to St Mary’s Church in the Parish of Hook with Warsash and arrangements are under way for this to happen quite soon.

The other two plaques will be re-sited on one of the buildings in the lower site when the development has been completed. The building development of the lower site which will be used for the Fire School, Maritime Safety, Offshore and Seamanship Courses and will commence in June whilst that for the upper site will probably not start until 2020 as discussion continue with the planners and developers.
In addition, it is proposed that a replica Roll of Honour Plaque should be sited within the new WMA Campus at Solent University and suggestions are awaited from the University on the preferred location.

Kind regards, Chris Clarke (1959)
