Another set of photographs.

I thought that this complete set of the same memorial was interesting just
for the sheer number of names.

This is a relatively small town. I would guess that today's population is no
more than 10,000, so in WW1 they must have been virtually decimated. The
number of casualties from the other wars is very high as well. The 1870/71
memorial is very unusual, and the number of names very high.

I also like the statuary on the memorial. Rather unusual, I think.
