Memorial

Frank Roberts VC Islington war memorial, 5 VCs and Ogilvy-Webb

Plaque: Frank Roberts VC

Erection date: 22/3/2017

Inscription

{Below an image of a Victoria Cross medal:}
Lieutenant Colonel Frank Roberts, Worcestershire Regiment, 22nd March - 2nd April 1918.

Site: Islington war memorial, 5 VCs and Ogilvy-Webb (8 memorials)

N1, Islington Green

In July 2018 the 5 VC plaques are laid into the explanade in front of the war memorial, reading left to right: Parslow, Booth, Train, Sayer, Roberts. These are laid in a row, inter-spaced with blank stones.

The information plaque is laid into the grass, to the right of the war memorial. On our visit this was fenced off (not sure why) so we could not reach the plaque to clear the leaves and read it completely. We'll have to go back.
