Sir Eugen Millington-Drake.
Dear Sir,
Will you permit us as parents of a boy whose name is commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial to thank you and Mrs Millington Drake for the gift of land on which it has been possible to erect this shrine. I am sure that thousands of others are with us in spirit.
It serves as a link between us and our dead son – something tangible where we can pray for his soul.
Ever watchful
Yours respectfully
Mr & Mrs Madgett
