COMPLETED - ANYONE VISITING TOWER HILL MEMORIAL?

Post by jim mccreadie » Sat Oct 11, 2008 5:03 am

If anyone with a digital camera should visit Tower Hill Memorial in the near future, I would greatly appreciate photographs of the following:

Panel 88 - Chief Officer Peter McCREADIE
Panel 101 - Master JAMES McCREADIE

Thanks and regards.

Hi Jim
Is it the memorial in London that you mean?

Best wishes

Hi Jim,

Why not join the Great War Forum: http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forum ... hp?act=idx

There is a board for Look-ups, photo requests etc., and I'm pretty sure someone there will already have photos.

I should have noted that James and Peter died in Second World War though.

Oh well then, you don't want your wrists slapped by daring to post a WW2 query on a WW1 Forum (Been there, done that!!)

How about: http://www.ww2chat.com/forums/

Wished i had seen this earlier i passed it today. Well i can pass it most days but Saturdays is always easier as its not so busy. Some of those panels are actually quite tall on the main road then there are some in the "square" to so providing i can see the name (im only 5ft 2 ! ) and its still daylight when i get there i will get a photo for you. But in the mean time if anyone else is passing dont hesitate !...........

Many thanks Tracy or anyone else who can oblige. Details are:

Panel 88, Dredger Ronaldshay, Chief Officer Peter McCreadie
Panel 101, SS Stanwold, Master James McCreadie

IF possible, I should like one photograph each of complete crew list and one of above relatives names. Ronaldshay may show only two names; I cannot identify other name. Stanwold had a crew of 19 plus two DEMS gunners. Both vessels sunk with all hands.

The Second World Wars names are in the sunken garden part of the Tower Hill Memorial and are easier to photograph.

I have some panels from the Tower Hill Second World memorial for some of the Scottish Registered vessels.

I will check to see if I have either of the men named.
