About the memorial: Plaque unveiled in 1991 in what was then the RBL Car park but is now a supermarket. Honours those trained at HMS St George on the island in WW2 and who then lost their lives.Brass plate on wooden base measuring approximately 9 x 6 inches. Engraved with St George emblem. The memorial was unveiled on 23rd April 1991. The cost of the memorial was between £100 - £120. The memorial was originally located in the building where members of H.M.S. St George trained. The training camp was demolished and the plaque was relocated. In 2000, the area where this memorial was sited was reorganised, resulting in the plaque and its column having to be re-sited. A new location was found, on the door of an unused small castellate building where it now rests. Shoprite own the building and with their consent, an office housing the I.L.S Group decided to re-paint the building where the plaque now stands. The memorial was designed by G.H. Corlett, Castle Street, Douglas, Isle of Man. It was built by the employees of Shoprite Plc. Information provided by the Isle of Man Government Preservation of War Memorials Committee.
