    Three of the War Memorials that are located near to me which I pass on a regular basis and today I finally made apoint of stopping and taking some pictures. They are located in llanwrda, Cwmann and Lampeter.



    Interestingly the Cwmann memorial has the motto of the Welch regiment, better death than dishonour, Gwell Angau Na Chywilydd in Welsh at the top.

    Just came across this thread so dug out some photos I have.

    First up are a couple of my old local memorials before I was banished to N. Europe. Although I shouldnít really complain because Iím only 800km away from where Iím originally from, but I do at every given opportunity.

    I live in a small town out of Sydney and I was happy to come across a small memorial near an old church local to me.
    On the one side there are the FOUR local men who sacrificed all in the great war and on the opposite is a plaque to the FIVE who did the same in WW2.

    Nine men who a tiny rural community thought so much of that they erected this obelisk to their memory...... are we in the 21st century REALLY a better people than them? .... In a world going mad, sometimes I wonder .
