The memorial for Cleland is on the bend of a reasonably busy road, so to take pictures it's wise to park in the nearby railway station and walk the short distance to the memorial.

Something I've not noticed before on another memorial. The names are recorded in order of the year. It's also interesting to see a couple of names from the Italian Army:
