Gainsborough’s part in building war time submarines has been celebrated as a special blue commemorative plaque was dedicated and unveiled.

The plaque is dedicated to the HM Midget Submarine X-24, which was built by Marshall and Sons in the town back in 1943.

Local dignitaries were joined by the families of the men who built the submarine 70 years ago for a special ceremony and the unveiling of the plaque at Marshall’s Yard.
