Says it all really....
« on: December 13, 2011, 09:01:45 AM »

Following a discussion on Heroes & Villains, the fanzine received permission from the club to erect a plaque to those players, officials and supporters who served in wartime. This is now on display on the wall of the Trinity Road Stand by the pavers. (photo by Lee Baker) Click image to enlarge.

After talking to a plaque manufacturer, suitable wording was agreed. The plaque is off English brass & bronze with deep embossed lettering. The metal itself is cast from a specified ingot brass/bronze. The raised text, borders and outside edges are hand polished and finished. The thickness of the plaque is approx 4 to 5 mm.

Unfortunately the following part was not able to be incorporated, due to various difficulties.

Those long uneven lines
Standing as patiently
As if they were stretched outside
The Oval or Villa Park,
The crowns of hats, the sun
On moustached archaic faces
Grinning as if it were all
An August Bank Holiday lark

From MCMXIV, by Phillip Larkin
