This memorial was originally sited in Douglas Drill Hall, Tromode and was put in store on 19 June 1968 when the hall underwent a change of use. On 19 June 1968, a Ceremony of Unveiling and re-dedication took place at the Legislative Buildings before it was erected in a Government office. The new unveiling was conducted by His Excellency Sir Peter Stallard, K.C.M.G.., C.V.O., M.B.E., Lieut. Governor. The memorial was later removed when the building was refurbished, and was erected in its final resting place at the Royal Chapel, St Johns, on 11 November 2004.
