About the memorial: Two Brass Plaques (one for each conflict) in a combined wooden frame. Towards the end of the 1990s it was recognised that the South Nesting Primary School had become unsuitable for the modern day curriculum, and it was decided that a new school should be built on a site next to the South Nesting Hall. The new Nesting Primary School was opened by the area’s Councillor Jim Irvine JP on 28th of October 2004
