It is impossible to photograph this plaque showing both the inscription and his image in the circle - so we have used two separate pictures.

Southern Railway General Manager 1923 - 1937.
Director 1937 - 1947.
This station, the development of the docks at Southampton & the electrification of the Southern Railway, to which he gave his genius & leadership, are his memorial.
