Tree: Nuclear bombs

Erection date: 9/8/1985

Inscription

This Japanese Acer Tree was planted by the Greater London Council and the Kensington and Chelsea Campaign to Save Democracy in London to commemorate the visit to the borough on 9th August 1985 of survivors of the nuclear holocaust in Hiroshima and Nagasaki - 6th and 9th August 1945.

Only when we got the photo home did we see that there is another line of text, obscured by the grass. It finishes with '....... evil of war.' We need to go back.
