ROF 53 memorial tablet - Bridgend
To the west of Bridgend are the suburbs of Brackla, Coity and Waterton. Now covered in modern housing and industrial estates. In the period 1937 to 1946 they were the location of Royal Ordnance Factories 11,41 and 53. Although only referring to ROF 53 it is otherwise suggested that the memorial is dedicated to all who served in 'The Bridgend Arsenal'. The stone commemorates those whose lives were accidentally taken in this dangerous work in support of British Forces and the war effort.
