About the memorial: A white stone tablet naming additional casualties from post WW II conflicts. The plaque was installed in February 2011 specifically to honour the memory of Peter Grundy, but there is space for further names should there be a need. The plaque was paid for from the Isle of Wight Council Chairman's allowance. The Chairman, Cllr Ian Stephens, considered it appropriate to use these funds in this way. The work was carried out by Dave Crouch of Wight Stonemasonry Ltd. Peter Stephen Grundy was born in 1958 and died aged 21 on 16 December 1979 while serving with the Parachute Regiment in Northern Ireland. He is buried in Ryde Borough Cemetery Note that the theatre (a listed building) has been closed since 2015. In 2019 it was reported as abandoned and secured. It is not known if the 3 memorials-WW1, WW2 and post war remain inside or have been relocated.
