Description
Concrete base surmounted by plinth and obelisk. Black inscription on the sides of the plinth. WW1 and WW2 names 3 0'Clock face. The names of those who served on the remaining three faces. Wreath in relief on the 6 O'Clock face. During the autumn of 1983 the monument was refurbished by R. Wallace and Son of West Butterwick. Unfortunately mistakes were made when trying to read the names for re-engraving. The three errors on the North face were corrected in 2007 but other inaccuracies remain on the other sides.
