  • Email from Archivist to Paul Cooper received 11/02/2021. Dear Paul, Thank you for your email and for your interest in the Risbygate memorial. I had some interest in this memorial last year and on looking into it found that unfortunately it seems to have got lost in transit on its way to the archive. I have attached a photo taken by one of the branch staff to this email. I hope this is of interest to you but please do let me know if you have any further queries. Thank you and kind regards, Peter Judge Archivist Group Archives & Museum Group Sustainable Business
