October 31, 2013 ... VIP unveiled
at Chatham Naval Memorial
Newsletter, December 2013
On 31 October, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence unveiled a new Visitor Information
Panel (VIP) at the Chatham Naval Memorial in Kent.
Among those present at the event was Tom Rainsbury, nephew of Able Seaman
Thomas Rainsbury, who is one of over 18,000 men commemorated on the memorial.
My uncle was an Able Seaman and manned one of the gun crews on the HMS
Jervis Bay. He had no naval background he was an ostler, and loved his
horses. According to my Dad, he had never travelled outside of London in his
life until he joined up on the outbreak of war, said Tom.
Able Seaman Rainsbury was serving on board HMS Jervis Bay when the ship was
sunk on 5 November 1940. His story along with that of Captain Edward
Fegen VC is featured in the QR code on the VIP at the Chatham Naval
I was astonished to see my Uncle Tom there on the same page as such
illustrious people as Vice Admiral Sir Henry Percy Douglas, Lieutenant John
Conrad Cherry and Captain Fogerty Fegan VC, and to have a thumbnail of his
history told, said Tom.
The CWGCs VIP project combines smartphone technology with traditional
interpretative techniques to engage a new generation in the contribution made
by servicemen and women in two world wars.
The panels at Chatham are among 500 the Commission is installing worldwide as
part of a wider initiative to provide more information to the public during the
Centenary of the First World War. More than 100 of the panels are being erected
in the UK, to provide information about the many thousands of Commonwealth war
dead who are buried or commemorated here.
