In Remembrance.

This is the War Memorial in Towneley Park, Burnley
It's a bit different to many. Made out of Portland stone, it has carved figures of a soldier, airman and sailor. On each side are bronze female figures representing wives or mothers. There are also some interesting symbols used in the design such as the rosemary bush for remembrance and the cricket bat representing the men’s boyhood.
In front of the memorial is a reflective pool surrounded by paving and grass.
Impressive and poignant in the autumn sunshine.
Press 'L' to view Large.

Very many thanks to you all for the stars and hearts for my yesterday blip - it also made the Spotlight - Wow :-)
