They whom this monument commemorates were honoured among those who at the call of King and country left all that was dear to them, endured hardship, faced danger and finally passed out of sight of men by the path of duty and self sacrifice giving up their own lives that others might live in freedom. Let them who come after see to it that their names be not forgottenErected by their fellow townsfolk. Civilians killed by enemy action.

Civilians: Baggot Louis, Dodds Jamison (WJ), Fisher CB, Hallas D, Shaw Norman, Walsh ME, Whitcher NFJ.

Grade II (England)
