About the memorial: Due to the large extension to the Town led by the Mayor the towns people felt a sister War Memorial to the other new Dorset's, Devon & Dorset's and Rifles war memorial was needed along with street names in remembrance of the previous Regiments sacrifice and the New regiments sacrifices and those yet to come. The Developer Persimmon Homes gladly donated the funds £5000 and labour to ensure this was well done, Local people fully supported its location.
