It's good to see the Forestry Commission going to this effort. I'm glad to see signs will be going up too.

Great result.

A local man, Robin Hood from the charity Southwest RnR has put an appeal in the local paper for info about this man. He hopes to hold a commemoration at the memorial later this year to feature soldiers who have been injured in service, for example in Afghanistan, as part of their rehabilitation and they will also be involved in cleaning the memorial.

I have given both him and the local papers a lot of info about the man himself.

Incidentally, John Murray was 6 feet and 1.5 inches tall which was considerable back in the day so he would have really stood out in a crowd.
