About the memorial: The Southern Secondary School For Boys (Portsmouth Council Secondary School until 1921) was at Victoria Road North. This building was destroyed by bombing in WW2. The school moved temporarily to Highland Road and was renamed the Southern Grammar School For Boys. It moved again to brand new premises at Baffins from 1955-1975, then returned to the Victoria Road North / Priory Road site and took the name Priory School. This plaque was originally at Victoria Road North, but was saved from the bombed-out building and taken to Highland Road. It was found in a lift motor room at Highland Road in 2006 (see Memorials in Portsmouth Link). It was given to the City Museum Service and featured in the 'Lest We Forget' exhibition of 2014.
