History
2003: 10 June - Message from Capt. Exley (former Perm Staff Officer at East Ham TAVR). Following the East Ham unit's move to Romford TAVR, most of the memorials will be moved to the unit's new location apart from the one to 281 and 291 Brigade, RFA (niwm 12419). This has been dismantled and is now on the floor of the drill hall awaiting transfer to its new home at the Rotunda Museum, Woolwich as the 281 and 291 RFA were originally Woolwich units. The remaining memorials from East Ham have been moved to Romford with the unit. 1998: VICARAGE LANE TAVR CENTRE IS TO CLOSE AND FATE OF MEMORIALS IS UNCERTAIN
