"Major-General Sir Reginald Thomas Thynne KCB (23 December 1843 – 30 December 1926) was a British Army officer who became General Officer Commanding North Eastern District. He was born at the rectory of Walton, Somerset, the son of Lord John Thynne and a grandson of Thomas Thynne, 2nd Marquess of Bath.

Military career

Thynne was commissioned as an ensign in the Grenadier Guards on 3 October 1862. After seeing action in the Anglo-Zulu War in 1879 and then in the Anglo-Egyptian War in 1882, he became commanding officer of 3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards and then went on to be General Officer Commanding North Eastern District in 1894 before retiring in 1902.

He was appointed a Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath on 26 June 1902."

These memorials are described in Major Sir Nevile Wilkinson's book 'The Guards Chapel 1838-1938' and there is a photo of the Chancel in this book showing the Choir pavement. (This book is an essential reference work for those interested in Guards history).

As you know on Sunday 18 June 1944 the chapel was hit by a flying bomb and 121 people killed and 141 injured. The band of the Coldstream Guards was on duty and suffered considerably. The apse (covering above the altar) was the only part of the building to survive and this forms a focal point for new (present) chapel which was dedicated in 1963. I doubt that the pavement has survived - you will just have to visit Birdcage Walk and see for yourself - better than sitting at home googling old newspapers.
