We have been contacted by Phil, a volunteer on the Imperial War Museum’s War Memorials Register Project. They have a record of a memorial plaque that was placed in St John’s Church, Hanley, Staffordshire by the Salonika Reunion Association in memory of those who served and died in Salonika.
The church is now an antiques centre and Phil has spoken to the owner who has confirmed that the plaque is no longer there. He said that a number of plaques were removed during the period when the church was closed.
A quick search of The Mosquito – the publication of the SRA – has not revealed any mention of the church, the plaque or any dedication ceremony, so it remains a mystery. Does anyone out there know anything about the plaque? Please contact us if you do and we will pass the information onto Phil.
