The PWSTS WW2 Memorial Plaque Service of Remembrance was held at the
Holy Trinity Church Ingham at 11:00 hrs onSunday 20th May 2007.
183 people attended the service. Click here to see who attended.
In 2005 we found the PWSTS WW2 Memorial Plaque hanging on
the wall inside the British Sailors' Society Pub in Dover. Although a safe
place, we thought it an inappropriate place for a war memorial. After
several years of negotiations with the church and with permission of the
British Sailors' Society the plaque was returned to Ingham where it was
first unveiled after the war. The old school building is now a retirement
home so the plaque was placed in the church which sits next to the old
school building. PWSTS boys did attend the church and a member of staff is
buried in the grounds.
If you visit the church please sign the PWSTS visitors book. Thank you
once again to the lovely ladies of Ingham Village for making the day so
special. Flowers are still replaced weekly underneath the plaque.
In March 2007 Cyril Levett (PWSTS 1940), Russ Foster (PWSTS
1943) and Len Abel (PWSTS 1951) were interviewed at Ingham Old Hall by
Anglia Television. On the 12th April 2007 the interview was aired on the
evening news. Courtesy of Anglia TV we are able to
share the footage.
