24/09/2016 The recently-cleaned War Memorial. Its official title is the Cross of Sacrifice, designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield in 1918. It is present in Commonwealth war cemeteries containing 40 or more graves. (Ed.)

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission had ensured that the Cross of Sacrifice was washed down a couple of days before Doors Open Day. They have pressure-washers and have to bring in large containers of clean water, as there’s no source on-site. They also ensured that paths to War Graves were clear. Very well done CWGC! And there are a couple of new stones recently erected. (CG)
