Plaque: Charlton Athletic F.C. war memorials
War Memorial

Erection date: /11/2014

Inscription

{Main plaque, beneath the Charlton Athletic Football Club badges:}
To the everlasting memory of the players, officials and supporters of our club who left all that was dear and lost their lives in the service of their country.

'The boys left to take part in the greater games overseas.'
Charlton Athletic handbook 1927
Lest we forget

{Smaller plaque:}
Gunner H.B. Nightingale 38 TMB RGA - 13th January 1916
Private F.E.Chick 13/ Middlesex Regt - 31st August 1916
Ships Cook J.A.Mackenzie S.S.Heron - 30th September 1917

{The label beneath the main plaque informs that the plaques were donated by the Charlton Athletic Museum.}

The 1927 description of WW1 as 'the greater games overseas' seems strange to us today.
