Memorial

Skylon Festival of Britain & Jack Dimmer VC

Plaque: Skylon

Inscription

{At the top, the east, of the circle:}
Remembering the Skylon. Festival of Britain, 1951.
{Around the circle:}
I saw a blade which rises in the sky held by hardly nothing at all.

Plaque laid flat in the ground, to the west of the flagpole, to the right in our photograph. The main inscription reads like a quote but we cannot identify it.
