Unveiling of memorial to the Charlton fallen of the Great War - Saturday 19th November 2016

As some of you may know the Museum has for some time been planning to unveil its memorial to the three Charlton players/officials who fell in the first world war.

The memorial, in Portland stone, has been ready for some time and it has now been placed on the external wall of the West stand next to the existing memorial.

The memorial is behind the statue of Sam Bartram.

The new memorial contains the names of Jim McKenzie, Fred Chick and Nobby Nightingale and has been paid for and organised by the museum as has its placement on the wall.

To tie in with the club's Armed Forces Day the memorial will be officially unveiled on Saturday 19th November by a serving soldier who is also a Charlton fan.

We will speak about the three men and unveil the memorial from 2.15 pm. We will then have a bugler play the last post before dispersing at around 2.25/2.30 pm.

There will be other events on the pitch prior to the game arranged by the club.

We invite fans of both Charlton and Port Vale to gather by the statue of Sam Bartram from 2.00 pm onwards to join the act of remembrance.

Could any of you who use other social media please pass this on

    It's an act of remembrance and everyone is welcome.

    Let's leave it at that rather than politicising it.
    I agree. I just hope that if the club staff do come out, then they are allowed to pay their respects. Such a shame as I think the plaque is and wil become a fantastic memorial to Charlton's lost men.

    Totally agree.
  • This should be a totally protest free event if you get my meaning, even if Keohane or Meire are there.

    Totally agree. Must be respectful. Protests do not apply.
