Like so many, this interesting memorial came to us by a stroke of good luck. Robin Jenkin’s wife had handed one of our leaflets to their neighbour. She was in the process of clearing out her parents’ house when they found this in a cupboard. Her family names is Hind, but quite how her family ended up with it is not known. Not having previously known about Robin’s connection to ARWMP, they now handed it over, glad of a secure home.
As usual there is no indication on the memorial as to its place of origin – other than “…..fellow members…..” presumably of a club.
Thanks to research carried out by Simon Whelband, Joan Rowbottom, Michael Doyle and Denis Kenyon, it became clear that the majority lived in the Stoneygate/Knighton area and several attended Wyggeston Grammar School and with six being commissioned.
The current belief is that it possibly came from the Knighton Conservative Club. Research is ongoing.
