Erection date: 8/10/2011
This tree was planted by the leader of Greenwich Council Councillor Chris Roberts on 8th October 2011.
To the memory of those who died and those who served in the Burma Campaign 1941 - 1945.
"When you go home, tell them of us and say for your tomorrow we gave our today."
The plaque dates the campaign from 1941, but other sources give it as 1942. The quotation is credited to John Maxwell Edmonds.
