About the memorial: The official Cathedral Guide Book escribes the chair as ‘a canopied oak chair with a prayer desk. -------- It is the work of Thomas Beveridge and was officially handed over by Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother in 1963.’ From the guide book: A ladybird carved on the underside of the canopy recalls a patrol in 1943 by a motor torpedo boat commanded by Cmdr Alastair Montgomerie, between Great Yarmouth and Holland. A ladybird alighted on their charts but, feeling that to kill it would bring them bad luck , they spared its life. Later on that patrol ----- in a clash with enemy armed trawlers their petrol tanks were set on fire. However, they returned to base safely.’
