A small presentation and memorial service was held on Saturday 21st March at Brixington Parade to mark the erection and dedication of a community noticeboard to Royal Marine Alexander Lucas.
The noticeboard was handmade by the Royal Marines Assault Engineer branch who were assisting Brixington Improvement Group (BiG) as part of a CTCRM community engagement programme.
BiG suggested that the noticeboard would be a fitting memorial to Royal Marine Alec Lucas who had been trained at CTCRM.
The memorial service was conducted by the Reverend Paul Andrew, chaplain Royal Navy, and attended by Colonel K Oliver, Cpl Bugler from the Plymouth Band and Councillor Maddie Chapman. Members of BiG, Exmouth Royal Marine’s Association and David Calland, representing the Brixington Parade shops, were also at the service.
A donation of £280 from the Exmouth RMA, Budgens and Bladze, was gratefully received by the Alec Lucas Memorial Trust.
