Type: Freestanding
Location: External
Setting: Within a garden/park/churchyard/enclosure/Marketplace
Description: Cairn

  • Stone Stone (any)
Lettering: Inscribed on a plaque

  • First World War (1914-1918)
About the memorial: A cairn on concrete base, raised on 6 stone steps. There were also two stone benches beside the cairn. The former campsite is about 3/4 of a mile north of Stobs castle, approached by a side road off the B6399 recognisable by the Slitrig Valley War Memorial at the road junction. Obviously the pin position is speculative. The bodies were transferred to the Cannock Chase PoW cemetery in 1962 and at some point after that the cairn, erected in 1917, was demolished, though the base and some rubble may remain. Online research suggests that there is an organisation working to preserve this site, so things may develop.
