Memorial to the Fusiliers
Memorial to the Fusiliers
The top two lines of the inscription read:
"TO THE MEMORY OF THE OFFICERS, NONCOMMISSIONED OFFICERS & MEN of the 6TH TERRIORIAL NORTHUMBERLAND FUSILIERS WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES IN THE GREAT WAR"

The third line (to the left) says:
"To the Memory of All Ranks of The Royal Northumberland Fusiliers Who Gave Their Lives 1919-1968"
and to the right: "To the Memory of All Ranks of The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Who Gave Their Lives since its Formation in 1968"

The pillar is inscribed:
"43rd Bn
Royal Tank Regt
1939-1945"

The monument, with its statue of St George and the defeated dragon and its inscriptions says much of duty and sacrifice.

This was a stormy day: before taking the photograph, I collected up and replaced the poppy wreaths scattered by the gale ....
and I removed from the memorial into the nearby bin the carelessly-discarded barley-wine bottles, which say much of another side of life.
