Paul

It's WMR 77515, it got it's number before the archway was erected (see the thread on the McGuffie plaque in the County Buildings). I never got round to remembering to photograph it - even though I was on the Committee behind it's erection. How embarassing! But thanks for posting it. At the other end of the gardens there is a small sign carrying the name of the gardens. At some time the Council will get round to providing an information plaque - but don't hold your breath!

Thanks,

I have now updated the WMR report- had been waiting for an image.

I have also updated the War Memorials Online report. I don't know who created that as it was a straight data dump from the WMR report.
