About the memorial: The memorial consists of three separate wooden panels, the central panel is larger than the two that flank it, and both of these are the same size. The central panel is a Roll of Honour for those that died during both wars, the left hand panel shows members of staff that served in His Majesty’s Forces during the 1939 –1945 war and the right hand panel shows members of staff that served in His Majesty’s Forces during the 1914 –1918 war. The lettering for all the panels is gold coloured and the panels have been lacquered. The original position of the memorial was Gravesend Reporter Office lobby entrance, 158, Milton Road, Gravesend, Kent. The memorial was moved from its original position at the Reporter Office lobby in Harmer Street, Gravesend to a new location in 2002 but has then been moved a couple more times but is currently in storage under the ownership of Gravesend Historical Society. The memorial lacquer was showing the signs of age and was very “crazed” and cracked when viewed in 2002.
