Notes

1. This wall was damaged in the bombardment. Two further plaques have been placed on the rear.
See H115.20.

2. From the Unveiling programme for H115.01, it is clear that this wall is part of the original grouping containing the “Triumphant Youth” column. It reads: “The accompanying stone screen carries five tablets incised with the names of the “Fallen” and those who lost their lives through the Bombardment. These contain 351 names of men of the Navy, Army and Mercantile Marine, and 52 men, women and children killed in the Bombardment.”
