About the memorial: WWWMP - "The barracks proved to be a key base for troops stationed in the town over the ensuing years, and after the Haldane Reforms in 1908, became a base for local Territorial troops and the home of the Pembrokeshire Royal Garrison Artillery. During the Second World War it became the headquarters of the Milford Haven defences, and saw one of the worst local wartime tragedies unfold on 28 April 1942, when a nineteen military personnel were killed during bomb disposal training, with the explosion of a naval mine. The barracks have since gone into private ownership, and work is underway to restore it. Inside the barracks is a memorial plaque which commemorates the lives of the men killed in the mine explosion, seventeen of whom are buried locally, in Pembroke Dock Military Cemetery. Three of the men killed were German Jews, who had fled persecution in Nazi Germany."
