“Blondie” Haslar Blue Plaque
Monday 17th October 2016 sees the unveiling of the blue plaque to commemorate Lt. Col. H.G. “Blondie” Haslar DSO OBE CdeG RM, who lived in Catherington.
The plaque has been funded by a grant from EHDC arranged by Sara Schillemore and donations from members of CVRA, which are most gratefully received.
It will be unveiled at 15 Glamorgan Road at 11:30 on Monday 17th October 2016 by Baron Ashdown of Norton-sub-Hamdon, more usually known as Lord Paddy Ashdown, a former Commando in the SBS. The event will also be attended by the Deputy Commandant of the Royal Marines, Brigadier Richard Spencer OBE ADC, and other serving & past members of the Royal Marines.
Access to, and parking on Glamorgan Road will be difficult, and we hope that
local residents will walk, or park their cars otherwise than in Glamorgan Road. Parking is available at All Saint’s Church, the Catherington Downs car park (opposite Catherington Church of England Infant School) or at the Farmer Inn – all on Catherington Lane.
