On this site, 1915 - 20, the Waterloo Free Buffet for sailors & soldiers fed over eight million men from British, Imperial & Allied Forces. Worked & supported entirely by voluntary effort.

Lovely bronze plaque to a heartening war-time British service.

SE1, Waterloo Station between platforms 11 and 13

Out thanks go to Tristan Appleby of Network Rail Station Management for access to this plaque. We had first spotted it many years ago but when we arrived with our camera, we could not find it. Had it been removed and junked? Some emails later we learnt that it lurks in a pedestrian tunnel which is only open during rush hours. Tristan kindly took us down there during a quiet period and we got our photos.
