About the memorial: The original memorial to Lt Herdman was a Memorial Institute. This fell into disrepair so was demolished and replaced by a Library on the same site which bears his name. A plaque inside the Library records all this with a photograph of Lt Herdman who was killed near Montauban on the Somme on July 1st 1916.The copper plaque is surmounted by a wooden framed sketch of Lt Herdman and flanked by two others of his parents.
