Site: Giles Vernon Hart (1 memorial)

W6, Ravenscourt Park

From Polish Solidarity we learn that the granite was shipped from Strzegom in Silesia. POSK, the Polish Cultural Centre, is at nearby 238-246 King Street and the author writes: "I remember him at many social gatherings, including his own 50th birthday party, held at POSK. He was also the leading spirit behind the PSC picnics held annually, first in Battersea Park and later in Ravenscourt Park, to commemorate the founding of Solidarnosc."
