One of the most magnificent War Memorials I've ever seen. The loveliest thing about this is it's not been vandalized, in any way. It's peaceful, in the town centre, the memorials are wonderfully tasteful, somewhere the town can be proud of.

Just take a few minutes to walk along Veterans Way, read the memorials and contemplate the cost of conflict. Very nicely kept.

It's nice to see a memorial to those who have paid the ultimate price so well maintained and given a high profile location. Hopefully it's some consolation to bereaved relatives to see their loved ones' sacrifice given such respect.
