Good to see the oroginal location. It's in a prominent location there, at a road junction. Where is it now? It's hard to see frim the photos we have.

Not much of a perspective from my original pics, sorry. From memory the memorial has been relocated to a local park situated amidst some private housing. Original location is much, much better.
