Summary


War memorial, unveiled in 1920.

Description

War memorial, unveiled in 1920.

The memorial comprises a late medieval-style stone cross. A Latin cross-head stands on top of a slender hexagonal shaft set on an elaborate hexagonal plinth with late Gothic-style canopies to each panel; three flying buttresses stand equidistantly around the plinth. Bronze plaques on the plinth record the names of those who fell (140 in the First World War; 13 in the Second), while above the plaques is inscribed: PRO NOBIS GLORIOSA PRO PATRIA IN VITAM PRO MUNDO SEMPITERNAM SUMMA INIERE AMANTES FORTITUDINE AMATI MORTE. The plinth stands on a three-stepped hexagonal base.
