Vernon Project 2015

Project Update November 2019

Earlier this week the TCA had advance warning of the unveiling of the Vernon MineWarefare & Diving Monument at Portsmouth Gun Wharfe Quays.

No details about timing and format yet, but it is confirmed that the TCA is invited to be represented at the event and a one-liner will be in the Editorial page of December’s TON Talk asking people to let the Hon. Sec. know if they are interested.

The Monument team has provided the TCA with a spread sheet for nominations, which may imply that there might be a limit on numbers if they are over-subscribed.

The event will be covered in June’s TON Talk and probably repeat the invitation in February’s edition. To visit their website click on viewmore


Offsite construction of the plinth components will start later this summer: we have all the necessary planning permissions in place and designs reviewed
Subject to passing the £330,000 target threshold, we will soon start (hopefully early next year) on the scale model of the monument itself
Monument miniatures and limited edition print sales continue to contribute well to the campaign: see our e-Shop web page for details…
A major fundraising event is planned for later this year in London. Details to be announced.
All support and contributions are warmly welcomed, as ever!
