About the memorial: Framed and illuminated resolution. Presented 19 December 1945. Attended by: By Mr W Cubbon (Chairman of the Isle of Man Education Authority) to Captain C F Stevens-Guille (Commanding Officer of HMS St George). HMS St George was a shore-based training establishment on the Isle of Man which closed in 1945. The personnel were transferred to HMS Ganges, another shore-based training establishment at Shotley. The IWM Register records the scroll as being previously at that location but with no known current location. This establishment in turn closed in 1976 but it seems reasonable to hope that the scroll was transferred to the HMS Ganges Museum in Shotley. Obviously it would be helpful if someone could visit to confirm this.
