Remembered Today:

Late addition to War memorial

Recommended Posts

Just looking at our local War Memorial in Brighouse Library gardens and

spotted a name "added" to a seperate corner on it's own. Not quite as well

crafted as the original names, reasonably well done but obviously not an

original. No other info or Army number, possibly died as a result of something

during the war where a relative or mate thought it appropriate to add.

F W Doyle (?)NES R.B.S 1922

can anyone shed any light ?

cheers

If you have the time, your local newspaper archive will probably have the answer, but you might have to go through a full year to find the man.

Bingo, sculptors name and date dedicated 1922. Just a shame the

writing is pretty faded with the JO(nes) lettering totally illegible.

Different craftsman must have carved the roll of honour as it's all

pretty clear or just looked after.

cheers

for the replies
