Description
Asymmetric stone grey stone of remembrance with black inscription and village crest. Attached is a plaque incised with a memorial poem.
Inscription
Stone: Lest we forget/ All gave some, Some gave all Plaque: Through marshes and bog,/ Through thunder and fog,/ What you did give,/ So we could live,/ What you have seen,/ Where you have been,/ Until we too,/ Aren't here at all,/ And only the poppies mark your fall.
