A plaque commemorates Trooper Phillip G Barwick who served in the Vietnam War, and died as a result of this war service in 1988.

On 25th June 1971, in South Vietnam, Corporal Andy Anderson was commanding a Centurion tank when it was hit by an RPG while attacking an enemy defensive position. He had just broken through a seemingly impenetrable obstacle, forcing the enemy to reveal their position prematurely. Both he and his Operator, Trooper Phil Barwick were very badly wounded.

Phillip, with his guide dog Donna worked at the Peel Cunningham County Council on the switchboard and inspired everyone he met. Phillip Barwick died as a result of his wounds on the 4th November, 1988.
