The unveiling of this plaque was reported in the East London Advertiser of 24 December 2009.
Andrew Behan has researched the names on the plaque and notes: the plaque uses 'Terrance Breen' when every official source has 'Terence Breen'; the 'Richard Adams' on the plaque was actually 'Reginald Adams'.
