Plaque (lost): Hunt & Stokoe plaque
In memory of our colleagues Terry Hunt and David Stokoe who gave their lives in the line of duty 10th July 1991. Presented by East Ham G/W.
Site: Hunt & Stokoe (2 memorials)
E16, North Woolwich Road
On the wall behind are two baskets for flowers and some screw holes. And on the wall a little to the left of the photo is another similar arrangement so 2 of these plaques used to be attached to wall. Which 2 and why they were moved, who knows, but the current arrangement is not a success.
(The third plaque in the photo is to the firemen killed in the Silvertown explosion, which we'll publish in January.)
Andrew Behan informs us that all these plaques have been removed since we last visited in November 2020 and the site is under development. Let's hope the plaques will reappear when the dust settles. Sadly the trees have also gone.
The fire station closed on 9 January 2014.
