As I was photographing the plaque a little while ago, some local residents asked me if I was reponsible for it, they went onto tell me that up until about two years ago, an elderly gentleman would lay a wreath on VJ Day. They wondered who he was and what had happened to him, because the wreath laying had stopped. I promised I would follow it up, so rather belatedly I told the Formby RBL about it yesterday, Mary Creagh wouldn't have taken as long as I did. Cyril went to see it in the afternoon, he didn't know it existed and he has phoned since to say he'll take up the question of it's condition and try to make sure that the memory of the Chindits here in Formby is maintained.
