SM9515 : Great War memorial

taken 10 years ago, near to Haverfordwest/Hwlffordd, Pembrokeshire/Sir Benfro, Great Britain

Great War memorial
Great War memorial
This striking memorial once stood in the middle of Salutation Square until the square was mostly swallowed up by huge roundabout in the 1960's. The pedestal, which is surmounted by a dragon, lists every man killed, by regiment, along with the names of the major WW1 battles and a fulsome tribute. The memorial gates (left) erected in honour of the WW2 fallen are much less impressive.
Between the two is a plaque to the memory of Pte. Thomas Collins of Camrose who was the only Pembrokeshire man to die at the battle of Rorke's Drift.
