Remembering Dorchester's fallen.

The poppies are looking a bit wet this year, but the recently cleaned war memorial on the corner of South Street and South walks in Dorchester, is a reminder to the residents and visitors to the town,  of the sacrifices made by our brave service men and women.

The memorial was unveiled in 1921.

Here is a link to the Dorset Life Magazine that gives more details about it's history.

 Near the memorial is a garden of remembrance, where there are 2 benches that are a reflective place to sit for a while, once the rain has stopped!
