Naming ceremony of Pengelly Apartments, Bartlett Mews, Millwall, London

On Wednesday 16th July, 2008 we photographed something a little different a
naming ceremony of Pengelly Apartments, Bartlett Mews, Millwall,
London.
During 1938, Violet Pengelly ( my fathers sister and my auntie) aged
19 and Joan Bartlett aged 18 were among the first female members to serve in the
Auxiliary Fire service and was stationed on the Island. Sadly they both lost
their lives in a bombing raid at the height of the blitz during World War
Two.
My father Victor Pengelly being the sole surviving Brother was asked to
name the Pengelly Apartments, Bartlett Mews, Millwall, London in a very moving
ceremony.
The highlight of the day was when my father Victor Pengelly was
presented with a medal for Violet Pengelly for her service in The Auxiliary Fire
Service.
The day was a very proud day for my father which I was really
grateful that I was able to share
