About the memorial: This is the surviving part of a memorial formerly in St Mary's Cathedral, Newcastle (WMO/282354) which was largely demolished when the Cathedral was re-ordered in the 1980's. It then ended up in a private barn, and was then moved to Fenham Barracks. By 2016 it was then inside Anzio House, in a poor condition. It was then cleaned and repaired at the instigation of Regimental Sergeant Major Thompson, following which it was placed in the building's forecourt. It is carved from timbers to look like a cross with a laurel wreath standing on a heap of military equipment including a drinking bottle, telescope, rifle, pith helmet and sword. One pack bears the initials DLI, another NF. On the wall alongside are two marble tablets, each bearing one of the respective regimental badges raised in half relief. At the 2016 refurbishment a stainless steel dedication plaque was added.
