DOBWALLS WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Paula & Dave Kennington 2006

This memorial is located just off the main A38, in front of the memorial Hall which was opened in their honour. The memorial takes the form of a stone cross; it has a concrete base surmounted by double plinth, tapering shaft and latin cross with the Inscription on the base of the shaft and on the plinth in black lettering. The memorial was cleaned around 1999 and the cement renewed where the memorial joins the plinth. The memorial hall has a dedicated plaque inside mounted on a wooden backboard. Both memorials contain the same 10 names for World War 1 and 8 names for World War 2. The names are listed by Surname, initials and rank. For World War 2 the names have been split into two sections, those killed in action and those who died on service.
