Ian Fraser Memorial
A memorial commemorating Blind Veterans UK Chairman, Lord Ian Fraser.
A memorial to Lord Ian Fraser, was unveiled in the historic setting of the Cloisters of Westminster Abbey in November 1976.
Lord Fraser was blinded in the Battle of Somme in 1916 and in 1921 was appointed Chairman of St Dunstan's- now known as Blind Veterans UK. This was a role he stayed in for 53 years
The memorial was made by sculptor, Royal Academy Associate, David Mc Fall, who previously completed a portrait bust of His Royal Highness Prince Charles.
Bearing the St Dunstan's badge, the tablet was unique in that for the first time in its 900 year history, the Abbey had an inscription in braille. The memorial can still be admired today at Westminster Abbey.
2013 saw the arrival of bees at our Llandudno centre. However, this is not the first time that Blind Veterans UK has been involved with bees.
The glass was originally placed in the chapel at our centre at West House, Brighton, and was later transferred to the new chapel where it remains today.
