Next to Forbury Gardens, this monument pays tribute to Fred Potts, a heroic trooper who himself heralds from Reading. Found outside Reading’s Crown Court and has lots of information about what it truly symbolises.

Thank you Christopher. We love the memorial as do the descendants of Potts and Andrews. One of the young members of the Andrews family, around 10 years old I guess, asked to read out On Flanders Fields at the memorial on Armistice Day in 2018. We felt the Information Boards were essential to ensure continued understanding. We continue to deliver educational work to local schools, Cubs and Brownies and other Groups and have 3 such sessions in the next 3 weeks. Thank you again for your positive review

The memorial is situated just outside Forbury Gardens (opposite Forbury Hotel) and a modern tribute to a local lad who won his VC on the Gallipoli Peninsular during 1915. Although he survived the Great War, Trooper Potts died at the young age of 50. What makes this memorial all the more interesting are the information panels which not only detail his heroic deeds but also the history behind the VC. Inside the gardens is the imposing memorial to those members of the Berkshire Regiment who lost their lives during the first Afghan Wars.

Thank you for that feedback. It is a quiet area at the moment. Once the Abbey is re-opened there will undoubtedly be more passers by. Thank you again for commenting so positively. Our Sculptor - Tom Murphy will be very pleased you liked it.
