Reginald gave his life on 11th August 1917 in Flanders aged just 19. His story is on the plaque situated close to where he now stands. Please spare a few seconds with Reginald as you pass so that he knows that you will never forget

Mural

The long-awaited mural (delayed due to Covid), designed and painted by the 'Time Turners' a group of youngsters delivering creative projects as part of the 'Stories of Lynn', has been painted on the siding of The Bridge Centre located in Clough Lane, King's Lynn. I am sure we all agree that this is an amazing piece of artwork, that represents both the diversity and scope of people who have contributed to the Armed Forces during the 20th and into the 21st century.
