Broadbottom War Memorial


The eleventh day of the eleventh month is Remembrance Day so I thought an appropriate post would be a close-up view of the War Memorial on Mottram Road, Broadbottom.

It is a four-sided edifice, with pillars at each corner. The pillars are capped with pinnacles and the monument topped with a dome bearing a large cross.

The inscriptions are bourne on four marble slabs, above each of which is a small gable.

Even though still to be completed, it was unveiled on Saturday, July 1, 1922.

Still to be completed! The right image for today as so many have been.

An appropriate post.

A slight digress: On the eleventh day of the eleventh month I took my Ph.D.

Such devistating losses for Britain in that war are seen by the repetition of the last names on the memorial. Lovely post - and a good reminder "LEST WE FORGET".
