One more correction - to my comment about this being used 9 times - make that 10. I've just realised that there is another memorial in Grangetown in South Wales which is yet another version of this figure. As has been pointed out elsewhere (see the comments - & excellent photos - on the Langholm memorial) there are slight variations with some of the versions, but the same basic cast was used in all cases.

I've just been told that 2 years ago the local British legion had 3 WW2 plates added to the bottom of the memorial.
One of these plates shows the following:-
"In glorious memory of those that gave their lives in the world war 1939 - 45"
The other 2 plates give the names of those fallen. They do not give details of Rank or Units unlike those of the first War.

The town hall is again open for business and the original WW2 memorial can now be accessed.

Photos to follow when I'm next over that way on the motorbike. Wink

I understand that these WW2 plaques were added to the memorial sometime before remembrance day 2011. The names are exactly the same as those on the plaque inside the Town Hall.
