Memorial Stone on The Common
Users of The Common may have walked past the memorial stone alongside the A346 without a second thought as the lettering has been unreadable for some time. Last year Neil Stevens contacted us as part of his research into USA GI's and in particular the history of the 347th Station Hospital that was based here from May 1944 to July 1945, looking into the possibility of restoring the stone. Marlborough man Mark Nash, a 3rd generation painter with a shared interest, volunteered his services. We hope you'll agree Mark has done a fantastic job and join with us in passing on our thanks.
