The Firefighters Parade at Centre Page
Trust, was established in 1990 and the Trust negotiated a site to the south of St Paul’s Cathedral where a suitable memorial could be placed.
It is at the top of the new City Walkway which is also approachable from the south bank of the Thames via the new Millennium Pedestrian Bridge.
The National Memorial, to the men and women of the United Kingdom Fire Service, who had made the ultimate sacrifice in the defence of the realm in World War II, is the “Blitz” Memorial Statue.
The Memorial with its added height
looks even more fitting as a tribute to our fallen firefighters.
In 2003 the Memorial was elevated and the additional names of those lost in peacetime were inscribed in bronze on the raised base. The Memorial was re-dedicated to coincide with the Service of Remembrance in Sept 2003. A total of some 1,192 names were added in bronze to the Memorial.
With recent visits to The Centre Page from The Hoff, JLC and Alan Carr take a look at the other visitors to have been to this famous place.
The firefighters parade is one of many annual events that take place in Londons Square Mile it is a little known sad and touching memorial service
