How money was raised

Public subscription

Sculptor, Artist or Designer

Mr. Philip B. Bennison, A.R.C.A.


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."

3. Edward George Bartholomew and George Salthouse are the same person, therefore the name is repeated on some of the Memorials as two different men.
