WW II War Memorial

The Minchenden war memorial has been brought to light recently, and Eileen Bostle (Eileen Perolz when at Minchenden 1957 - 1964) is researching the names on it. There is a possibility that the Southgate District Civic Trust may publish the information she finds in the form of a booklet.  Eileen is looking for any information relating to those remembered and would like to hear from anyone who has memories, information or photographs relating to these people which they would be willing to share with me.

In the picture below the dates to the left of each name indicate the years the person was at Minchenden. You will notice that the middle and right-hand panels are in reverse order, but this was a temporary situation which has been easily righted as the panels were made to be removable. Some slight damage is also visible, but a craftsman in Southgate has offered to put this right and is currently working on it.

Enfield Museum at the Dugdale Centre is going to display the memorial in its exhibition on Enfield in World War 2, which will be on from 20th July 2019 to 20th April 2020. It is hoped that after that a new permanent home will be found for the memorial.
