Brierly Hill in the Black country allready has a traditional memorial which i noticed from a bus as i left.This monument is obviously modern there was a small wooded plynth which might have had a plaque on but was now bare ,and as the only other message was that on the cross the circumstances and funding for its erection must remain obscure

This is the WW1 memorial in the churchyard of St Peter's church in Holton le Clay in North Lincolnshire


Inside the church is the Roll of Honour for the village which includes two men who were in the army, then the RFC followed by the RAF
