About the memorial: Ysgol Dyffryn Aman is located at Margaret Street, Ammanford, and is the successor of the old Amman Valley County School. The school was opened in 1914, just prior to the outbreak of the Great War, and in its first year was attended by just 157 pupils. Despite their youth, twenty five former pupils of the original County School served in the forces during the war, one of whom lost his life, so soon after the end of hostilities the school saw fit to erect a marble war memorial in order to commemorate the service of these young men. This memorial is now located inside Ysgol Dyffryn Aman.
