Plaque: Festing Road residents killed in WW1
Erection date: /6/2018
1914 - 1918
At the break of day we remember them.
Albert Biscoe, bus conductor, No. 3
John Copping, sergeant, No. 43
George Down, house painter, No. 75
John Gobbey, lance corporal, No. 11
They stood at the end of the world.
In 2019 we learnt, at the Putney Society website, that the Putney and Wandsworth Historical Society have traced the 343 men of Putney who lost their lives fighting in WW1 and that plans exist to commemorate all of them in the streets where they lived. On that basis we've guessed that the Putney Society were involved in installing this plaque.
