Recommended Posts

The memorial, the height of which is 23½ feet, was erected on the site of the present five lamps at the junction between Waterloo and Seaforth. In addition to an inscription on the front, the names of the fallen have been engraved on the panels at the side. Unveiled by Col. Buckley, M.P., on Saturday, the 29th September 1921, the memorial contains the names of over 400 men.

Images taken recently by myself, Please take what you need.

These are excellent; this is my local war memorial and I've been meaning to photograph it for years. There is a memorial in France to the Missouri troops that fought in the Meuse-Argonne offensive which looks very similar and I've been meaning to do a comparison. If I could find my copy of Rose Coombes I'd be able to check it against her photo and remember where it is. I think it is quite close to where Harry Truman had his eardrum damaged by a battery of French 155s in 1918. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the images KB,

I was hoping to find the names of about 5 Anglesey casualties who were associated with Seaforth, but none of them seem to be included.

It would be really interesting Pete if you could dig those pictures out and do the comparison.

That's a shame Clive..... perhaps their respective families did not give their consent which was often the case?

Was the Anglesey/Seaforth connection a peacetime one? If it was only through service at Seaforth Barracks or Battery I would not expect the names to be on the local memorial.

Hi daggers,

One was born there, but likely moved elsewhere - Cheshire.

Three enlisted there, so might just have been resident nearby at the time.

One had next of kin resident there in the 1911 Census.

KB. I've just found my copy of Before Endeavours Fade and looked at the photo on page 146 of the US 35th Division Memorial near Varennes. It is significantly different from my local memorial apart being a representation of Victory and holding up a wreath. It hasn't got wings for a start. It just goes to prove that the more familiar you are with something the less you actually see. Thanks again.

Pete.
