Royal William Yard (RWY)

War Memorial – Photograph (PWDRO 116/22); after 1945

A simple three-panelled war memorial lists the eleven men and three women workers at the RWY Victualling Depot who died in WII. At the bottom it is inscribed ‘Presented by G.A. Christian S.A.S.O. 1941-46’. This was the Superintending Victualling Store Officer responsible for the Yard during that period. The memorial is held by the Naval History Centre in Devonport Dockyard (Bob Cook, Devonport Naval History Centre, pers. comm.), although it is not currently (September 2019) on display.
