The Blackmore War Memorial Research Project Group completed its list of inscriptions last week and has sent it to the Clerk of Blackmore Hook End and Wyatts Green Parish Council for forwarding to the engraver.
This has fulfilled one of the objectives to ensure that the transcript is accurate. “I am therefore sending you an update of the inscription, which corrects a great many errors in the original list you sent me [last autumn]. I have not corrected one error – the misspelling of the name Jopson – as we are confident that this was an error in the original carving.”
Work to clean and re-carve the War Memorial begins week commencing 3 May 2010 so this phase of the project was completed in the nick of time.
