THE MARITIME FOUNDATION MEMORIAL BOOK & SERVICE OF THANKSGIVING
A Service of Thanksgiving is held in October each year for friends and families to commemorate those whose names have been entered in the Memorial Book. This year's service is on Thursday 13 October at Noon. If you have a relative or friend whom you would like commemorated in the book, you can download an application form here.
The Memorial Book remains on permanent display at All Hallows, but it is hoped to make these records available to a much wider audience by digitising the entries and making them accessible not only to the families, but also to historians, genealogists, archivists and educationalists. To do this requires funding, and so the Lost at Sea appeal has been launched. We hope you will feel able to support this appeal to make the Memorial Book records available online in an interactive, searchable database. For more information, please go to the 'Lost at Sea' website at: www.lostatsea.org.uk
THE RECONNAISSANCE CORPS ROLL OF HONOUR & STAINED GLASS WINDOW
On Remembrance Sunday, 10 November 1985, a stained glass window bearing the badge of the Reconnaissance Corps was dedicated. The memorial window commemorates all who wore the badge with pride. It not only symbolises the formation of the elite, where only the highest standards were acceptable and where considerable bravery was exhibited in leading from the front, but a sense of comradeship born out of mutual dependence and strength of faith in each other.
If you wish to contact those who have information about the Corps, please contact Pat Mellis (Secretary, Reconnaissance Corps Association) email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
