About the memorial: Below is the memorial in memory of fallen comrades who died in the Second World War. I have shown the names of the former police officers in more detail below this photograph. The plate at the foot of the memorial contains information regarding the memorial’s unveiling and dedication and is also shown below. The current memorial plaque would appear to be same as the one in the article, except for the Pro Patria inscription, and the fact that although the brass plaque is mounted on wood, maybe it’s not the original. This is the inscription at the top of the wooden plaque, with the badge of the Grimsby Borough Police Force, showing that it commemorates the fallen of World War 2. This memorial gives the rank, surname and initial of the fallen. Both memorials for the First World War & Second World War are in a good standard of repair and are maintained by the Humberside Police. The brass was well polished as can be seen from the photograph, showing a police officer with in it. The wood on the Second World War memorial was highly polished making photograph taking quite difficult. The wooden plaque measures 690mm high by 430mm wide. I think that it would be quite difficult for members of the public to view these memorials on casual viewing, but I am sure that a letter requesting such a visit sent to the Superintendant would be met with a favourable response.
