Stop this disrespectful Town Council!

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Stop the noticeboard in front of Crewkerne's War Memorial!
    Crewkerne Town Council and South Somerset District Council have approved a planning application to build a huge notice board in front of the town's war memorial roll of honour.
    The project, led by the town's Civic Society, will see a huge, 14 feet by 7 feet, advertising board dwarfing the roll of honour above it.
    The decision comes after more than 2 years of objections by the local British Legion Branch and other concerned citizens. Veteran's groups say that they were not kept "in the loop" by the Town Hall and that their protests were not taken into account.
    Alternative sites are available within yards of the planned location which would not upset anyone.
    What has happened to this town's respect for its' war heroes and the democracy that they died to protect?

  2. Isn't there some statute governing war memorials not being desecrated?

    Where does it say it's been "desecrated"? :?
     
  4. Well being all but hidden isn't being exactly respectful, but I defer to your pedantisism "Isn't there a statute that makes obstructing a war memorial not on?"
