1. “If the ‘New Arcade’ is referring to St. Thomas's Arcade, which I think it is, then this arcade was damaged by German bombing in the same air raid that demolished St. Thomas's Church. The arcade was re-opened after repairs but was later demolished to make way for the building of the new telephone exchange." (Alan Vickers)

2 Alderman Walker's address at the unveiling included the fact that he had direct connection with marine engineering. "His father was a member of the craft, and a younger brother of his was lost off Flamborough Head whilst acting in a similar capacity."
