Photographs of this Memorial were previously posted as 'Camelon'.

This was entirely my fault as I didn't realise at the time there were plans to erect a completly separate memorial to Camelon men and women, so I'll now re-post the photos.

There are no names on any of the plaques.

It looks like the small metal fence around the main part of the memorial is a later addition and that there was once metal railings on the outer wall.
