On November 2nd the twelfth and final plaque to those Dulwich civilians killed in air raids in World War Two was unveiled. The unveilings, conducted by Kenneth Wolff have been very moving and will now serve as a permanent reminder of the horrors suffered by Dulwich residents during the conflict. It has also been an appropriate way to mark the Dulwich Society’s fiftieth year. Not all the unveilings were witnessed by large numbers of people although some were. At most we were able locate survivors or people who were related or friends of those who died. In many cases these people performed the simple ceremony and read out the names of those killed. The total cost of the memorials has been in the region of £3000.
