About the memorial: A tree was originally planted on the 75th anniversary of the war [1914 - 19] but unfortunately it could not be salvaged during the redevelopments at the site. The service featured a parade by war veterans and music from the Royal British Legion band, which played the Last Post in remembrance of those who died during the war. Parade Marshal Trevor Snell (73), chairman of the Spalding branch of the Royal British Legion, was one of the lucky few who got to speak to the Princess. He said: "It was absolutely brilliant and very well attended. I spoke to her about the original plaque and how it was lost. "The Princess was delighted with the wording of the new one, which has been altered to include those serving in the present day. ''It now covers all the wars, which I think it should, and it was fantastic to see the new tree." John Taylor, chairman of Springfields Horticultural Society, invited the Princess to commemorate her visit by planting a royal oak tree in the garden. 29 June 2004
