Graffiti daubing on Memorial Stadium gates

The Memorial Stadium was built to honour the memory of the rugby union players of Bristol who were killed during the Great War and is now the shared home of Bristol Rugby and Bristol Rovers FC.

I was most saddened to see this. As a season ticket holder for the rugby club I always figuratively doff my cap when passing the gates. Mindless stupidity as ever in cases such as these.  More details are available on the Bristol Rovers website.

The Bristol Evening Post says that the vandals returned last night and plastered the South Stand with graffiti – even painting the nearby toilets and pasty stand. The mind boggles at the pathetic childishness of some people. This is a good example of how proper education on the sacrifices made in the Great War is still so important.
