“This should be a battalion of Pals, a battalion in which friends from the same office will fight shoulder to shoulder for the honour of Britain and the credit of Liverpool.

I don’t ask you to uphold Liverpool’s honour it would be an insult to think that you could do anything but that, but I do thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming here tonight and showing what is the spirit of Liverpool, a spirit that should spread through every City and Town in the Kingdom.

You have given a noble example in coming forward. You are certain to give a noble example on the field of battle”

Important Notice:

Unveiling of the Liverpool Pals Memorial

Prince Edward will perform the unveiling of the Liverpool Pals Memorial at Lime Street Station at 11:00 am on Sunday 31/08/14.

Please be advised that, due to Lime Street Station still being operational on the day and also due to obvious Security concerns that constraints have had to be placed on the number of people invited into the station itself for the actual unveiling. The unveiling ceremony is therefore by invitation only. 

We do not wish to deter people from enjoying the occasion and offer an open invitation to attend the events being held at St Georges Plateau, where there will be a re-enactment of the Liverpool Pals signing up 100 years to the day since the would be Pals answered Lord Derby’s call for recruits at St Georges Hall.

During the re-enactment, part of the plateau will be transformed into an “attestation” centre, a trench and a field hospital to allow the general public the opportunity to participate.

Why not add to the sense of occasion by dressing in period clothing.

We look forward to seeing as many people as possible at St George’s Plateau. 

Thank You
