Plaque

Memorial Park at Guy's Hospital

Inscription

The Memorial Park
Established in memory of Guy's men & women who died in the First and Second World Wars. Re-designed in 1992 through the generosity of the Special Trustees of Guy's Hospital.

You can see that there used to be another plaque fixed to this wall. Let's hope it was a cheap temporary thing removed when this rather nice plaque was ready. Or perhaps this one had a frame which has been temporarily removed for restoration of some kind (rather than nicked for its scrap value).
