"The War Memorial is just at the bottom of the hill in George Street. It is of granite, with octogonal base and panels, a pillar above these with a ball at the top. The names of the fallen are on the 8 panels commencing with the North panel, looking down the street, then going Widdershins, that, anti clockwise."
