Photographed above are members of the committee of The Inkerman Dinner Club who were envisioned with the thought of this celebration. They then set about the planning, funding and implementing of their plan to perpetuate the memory of their past comrades in arms through the preparation of this magnificent Durham-quarried stone and of the plaque bearing the names of the eleven VC winners in their regiment.
They are (left to right)Mr George Fraser, the Secretary of the Inkerman Dinner Club, Mr Colin Armstrong the Chairman, and Lt Col Fred Phillips TD DL the President, who is holding the Time Capsule to be buried beneath the VC Celebration Stone.

Without the resolute efforts of the 'Faithful' Inkerman Dinner Club members there would have been no ceremony nor any Celebration Stone to pay tribute to the Regiment's most heroic acts of bravery.

With this final act the Durhams have commemorated and remained Faithful to their comrades in arms down through their proud history ..... to the very last.
