Even though George V proclaimed all German titles were to be given up by his family a century ago (July 17 1917), there is still physical evidence in our city of the Germanic royal house that once existed. Two commemoration stones relating to members of the royal house previous to the House of Windsor are so readily a part of the fabric of our daily lives but are probably in the most part overlooked.

A walk along Queen Street and on the corner with Aylward Street will present a building with a foundation stone that was laid by HRH Princess Henry of Battenberg in 1912. This was the married title of Queen Victoria's daughter Beatrice which was relinquished on 14 July 1917. From 17 July 1917 she was known as HRH the Princess Beatrice.

A visit to Sainsburys foyer in Commercial Road will provide the opportunity to see a commemoration stone for the opening of the Child's Ward of the Royal Hospital in 1909 by HH Princess Victoria of Schleswig

Four arrested after police crackdown in Commercial Road

Have your say

THIS man has been banned from going to a hospital or calling an ambulance or police – unless it is a real emergency – following a string of hoaxes.

Graham Pink has been ordered to stay away from St Richard’s Hospital in Spitalfield Lane, Chichester, for two years for repeatedly faking illnesses and wasting the valuable time of medics.

Terms of an anti-social behaviour order imposed on the 54-year-old, of Stoneage Close, Bognor Regis, mean he is now only allowed to visit the hospital if it is a genuine emergency or for a pre-arranged outpatients appointment.

He is also banned from behaving in a manner which causes someone to call an ambulance for him unless it is a genuine emergency.

And Pink must not cause alarm or distress to people in any public place in Bognor or Chichester by feigning serious injury or illness or ‘wailing without good cause’.

The anti-social behaviour order, imposed by magistrates in Worthing, will remain in force until June 20, 2013.

If Pink is caught breaching the order in the period he could face jail.
