I'm not sure about the background of this one, it's located in a public park near a part of town known as "The Heathery".

This memorial looks quite modern, as if it has replaced an older memorial.

This Windows Local Live map shows the location of the three Wishaw Memorials. See the thread on Newmains for the map for that memorial.

According to Wishaw's Part In The Great War this memorial was unveiled on Sunday 12th October 1919 and was the first war memorial (or Hero Memorial as it was known in Wishaw) unveiled in the town

It was originally erected in the grounds of Sunnyside Church.

The area immediately surrounding this memorial was improved several years ago, but I've not got round to posting updated photographs until now.
