The plaque on SJ9698 : Jack Judge Statue.

accompanied by a WW1 soldier

Inspired to compose the famous marching song
"It's a Long Way to Tipperary"
He was the first to sing it publicly in 1912
at the Grand Theatre in Stalybridge,
the town of its conception.

Unveiled 16th December 2005
by Councillor FRank Robinson

The plaque is carefully worded to avoid controversy by saying that the song was conceived in Stalybridge, rather than composed there, as is widely believed (LinkExternal link Tameside MBC press release). This is because many people dispute that and claim the song was written in his home town of Oldbury ( LinkExternal link Wikipedia).
