The Railway Heritage Trust has funded a plaque to honour Lance Corporal John Alexander ‘Jock’ Christie, VC.
Jock Christie was a parcels clerk employed by the London & North Western Railway at Euston Station and enlisted in September 1914. He is one of only seven railwaymen known to have won the Victoria Cross but had no memorial on the railway.
This omission was only recently recognised and Barry Kitchener, Station Manager at Euston, approached the Trust to ask for help in rectifying it.
The Trust was delighted to fund a plaque, which was unveiled today, 28th March 2014, at a ceremony at Euston Station. The plaque was unveiled by Jock’s son, Ken Christie.
