Unveiling of the World War 2 memorial at Paddington Station, 1949
On the 11th November 1949 the war memorial at Paddington which was erected following the First World War, was again the focus of a moving ceremony when a new plaque was unveiled by former GWR General Manager Sir James Milne, which rededicated the memorial to include the Great Western men and women who fought and died in World War II. A casket was sealed within the memorial, alongside the one that was placed there in 1922, containing a roll of honour that listed the names of the 794 employees who gave their lives in the Second World War.
