About the memorial: Looking at the current google street view it seems that the wall to which the plaque was attached in the turn of the century photos has been demolished but that the plaque may be alongside a seat in the same area. The 1545 invasion was the one which saw the sinking, accidental or otherwise, of the English flagship Mary Rose, which was recovered from the Solent in 1982 and is now on display at Portsmouth Harbour.
