War Memorial, Eastleigh Park
War Memorial, Eastleigh Park
Eastleigh’s war memorial was erected in 1929. It is a free-standing stone column surmounted by a bronze sculpture of the Angel of Mons LinkExternal link . Unfortunately, the original angel which stood on top of the column was stolen and never recovered. Subsequently a replica sculpture of the Angel of Mons (SU4519 : Angel of Mons, Eastleigh War Memorial) was commissioned by sculptor Jill Tweed and set in place.

The inscription on the plinth is:
1914-1918 1939-1945
To our/Glorious
Dead.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
we will remember them.

The names of the fallen are recorded in All Saints Church and Eastleigh Museum.
