Description
TWO-STEPPED BASE SURMOUNTED BY ORNATE OCTAGONAL PLINTH, SHAFT AND CROSS. BRONZE PLAQUES WITH INSCRIPTION SET INTO NICHES IN THE PLINTH. There was a longstanding issue with many of the 248 names having been omitted- so these were added on two additional plaques in the hedge behind in 2011. See also 22537 for WW2.
