Chester-le-Street War Memorial

Curiously this War Memorial was only dedicated in 2015. It certainly has the look of one only recently constructed. It is situated in the town’s Market Place set off from it by replica artillery shells. Information about the town’s original War memorial is on this webpage.

This side has representations of a World War 2 soldier and sailor plus two Royal Navy ships and a Spitfire.
