On Friday, 9 November, London Bridge station’s bronze war memorial was re-dedicated for the first time since moving locations during the rebuild of London Bridge station. The ceremony was officiated by the Canon Precentor of Southwark Cathedral and supported by standard bearers from the Royal British Legion.
The London Bridge war memorial, was dedicated in its original location on its installation in 1921, by the then Canon Precentor of Southwark Cathedral, John Bernard Haldane. While the station was being rebuilt as part of the Thameslink Programme, the memorial was preserved and restored, before being reinstalled in a carefully selected location.
Wreaths were laid at London Bridge on behalf of Network Rail, the Thameslink Programme, the London Bridge station team, Southwark Council and the local community.
