These two photographs are all there is currently for the Bridgwater memorial and were taken at the time of the unveiling. The memorial is in the centre of a fenced garden in King Square, Bridgwater, which is on the site of what was once Bridgwater Castle, and takes the form of a female figure of 'Civilisation' holding the wrold encircled by emablems of peace and commerce and treading demons of war under her foot, all mounted on a very large plinth. On each side of the figure and at the back of her throne are relief depictions of Labour, Fome Life and Education. The memoiral's sculptor was John Angel and the foundry was W Morris Art Bronze Foundry. It was unveiled by General The Earl of Cavan on 25 September 1924. There are 364 names listed for World War 1 (1914-1918), 113 for World War 2 (1939-45), 1 for the Korean War (1950-53) and 1 for the Falklands Conflict (1982). The names here for World War 1 and World War 2 were supplied anonomously and have not been verified against the memorial there are two more names than the number quoted for World War 1 and 63 for World War 2, the Falklands and Korean names were not submitted. If a list of names actually on the memorial could be supplied then this would help us correct the entries here.

Local newspaper report: "Whilst at the front Joseph had gained a reputation for his coolness under fire and of being the Ďdare devilí of the Battalion. Only quite recently he was Mentioned in Official Despatches for gallantry in action. At the beginning of the war he was a Private in the Somersets but his promotion was rapid and by his death the Battalion, had lost one of its most promising Non Commissioned Officers. He recently returned to Bridgwater from the front for a few days leave when he told friends he had a presentiment that he would never come back again. Two brothers are serving at the front with the Somersets. Lieutenant D R Rowcroft in a letter to Mrs Anglin states the deceased was hit in the head in the afternoon of March 4th and died at 8 oíclock the same night in the presence of his two brothers. He adds ĎI am very sorry indeed. He had only just left my Company and was a very good Non Commissioned Officer. A short letter written by the late Sergeant to his mother on the date of his death was also enclosed.

As a token of respect to the memory of Sergeant Anglin the Union Jack was flown at half mast on Tuesday at Albert Street School where he was a former pupil".
