The name of the company is originated from the company’s first project, which pertains to a memorial at Peninsula Barracks Winchester Hampshire England.
However the word “Peninsula,” spelt differently than many, who spell it Peninsular, brings forth to the arena the meaning of a piece of land surrounded by water. The directors felt that the word Peninsula would bring to the arena one of the battle honours worn on the cap badge of the Royal Green Jackets, thus bringing forward history from the Peninsula campaign.
Latterly many of the projects have involved travelling to different parts of the Country; some would say new peninsula new territory. This further rubber stamps the work of the company adhering to memorials and projects which form tributes to those that have died in campaigns on different peninsula’s. It is paramount to remove any ambiguity that we state the following;
Memorial At Peninsula although a private limited company are registered as a not for profit company, this means the Directors do not make any money from their activities in serving the company, their remit is to raise funds for the future projects and the upkeep of these projects.
Furthermore despite the name of the company, the projects are not always centered on the former Peninsula barracks and we do not represent The Royal Green Jackets Association or Council, we are separate from the Association and Green Jacket Council, we work independently, we do however feel it is important to share our links to the Museum. We are keen to promote the history of the Regiment and the Antecedents, hence the first project and subsequent projects. The company should not be labelled as purely working with The Royal Green Jackets, this particular regiment has many facets and associations as does Memorial At Peninsula, whose Directors are Hampshire Ambassadors, and members of the Waterloo association, and the Victoria Cross Trust, to name but a few, the common link is the work on memorials and tributes whilst promoting history

In the event of dissolution the same will apply.Under English law an unincorporated association consists of two or more members bound by the rules of a society which has at some point in time, been founded.
Several theories have been proposed as to the way that such associations hold rights. A transfer may be considered to have been made to the association’s members directly as joint tenancy or tenants in common. Alternatively, the funds transferred may be considered to have been under the terms of a private purpose trust. Many purpose trusts fail for want of a beneficiary and this may therefore may result in the gift failing. However, some purpose trusts are valid, and, accordingly, some cases have decided that the rights associated with unincorporated associations are held on this basis. The dominant theory, however, is that the rights are transferred to the members or officers absolutely, perhaps on trust for the members, but are importantly bound by contracts inter se.Memorial at Peninsula will act accordingly as per the above.
Accordingly, on dissolution, the distribution of these rights depends on how they were held. A purpose trust may by its nature survive the dissolution of the association, or it may not. If it fails as a result of the dissolution, then the rights will be held on resulting trust for the contributors, unless they can be shown to have renounced their right to such a trust in their favour. If the rights are held subject to contract, then they will be divided among the surviving membership upon dissolution, according to the terms of the contracts inter se or an implied term according to contribution. If, as a result of this contract or statute, no member can claim, the rights will pass to the Crown as bona vacantia. This conclusion has also been suggested where the association dissolves because only one members remains, although this has been doubted by some commentators who believe the last members should be entitled to the rights.
