About the memorial: The Woodland Trust web site says 'The ancestral home of the Howard Family is now owned by the Ballyedmond family. A former member of staff of the late Lord Ballyedmond, on hearing of the Trust’s search on local news, remembered the Corby Castle tree and put the Trust in touch with the deputy head gardener on the estate who sent photographs of the oak and accompanying plaque, which reads: “This oak was brought from the battlefield of Verdun and planted by Philip J C Howard of Corby May 1919 to commemorate the signing of peace.” ' https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/support-us/support-an-appeal/centenary-woods/stories-and-memories/verdun-oaks/
