Individuals in Brighton, in the UK, worked ceaselessly for several years to arrange for a Blue Commemorative Plaque to be erected at St. Ann's Court, Hove, in recognition of Lord Alfred 'Bosie' Douglas. Their success resulted in the first public honor ever afforded Lord Alfred! The Blue Plaque was installed on October 22, 2004. Lord Gawain is the Great-Nephew of Bosie.

Blue Plaques are meant to draw attention to buildings of interest because of their associations with famous people. In more recent years it has become the practice to erect a plaque only when the house in which a famous person lived is still standing. A number of plaques, however, mark the sites of famous buildings or historical events.
