Aldeburgh War Memorial

Just down the road from the church (last post), we find ourselves on the sea front where the war memorial is located.

Civilians killed by enemy action.  Second World War, one would presume, as the panel appears to be an addition.

The first two Great War panels…

…list forty four Army casualties,…

…and are followed by a panel listing the Great War Royal Navy casualties,…

…beneath which a small panel names six Second World War casualties.

The fourth panel lists more Great War Army casualties, making a total of sixty six in all,…

…and the final panel, the main list of Second World War casualties,…

…is divided, from the top, into Royal Navy, Army, R.A.F. and  Merchant Navy casualties.

‘In memory of those lives lost in Aldeburgh as a result of war operations 1939-1945’.

    Thats a nicely done memorial. So many of these are now on a spit of land virtually no bigger than the memorial itself, its always nice to see one in such a setting and so very obviously well cared for.
