Plaque to those lost on the Jedmoor, including Peter Redmond Thompson.

The Jedmoor, carrying wheat, was torpedoed on 16 September 1941.

In the opening chapter of Still Glides the Stream, written in 1945, Flora writes: 'During two world wars … hearts must have been torn with anxiety for the absent, and, at the close of both wars, there must have been those … who mourned amidst the general rejoicings.'
