About the memorial: Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens. The incised names on the memorial have become difficult to read. A decision was taken to address this condition by adding glass panels with the names of the fallen within the vicinity.The sequence of photographs suggests that there was deterioration between the 1990s and 2009, but that things have been addressed effectively in recent years. A new Condition Update would be valuable.
